The IHBC’s Scotland Branch offers a one-day seminar on 28 April 2017 in and around Newhailes, to examine good practice in lead jointing, shaping lead on to awkward roofs, slate trimming and laying on metal roofs.
Contractors ‘D. Blake and Co.’ specialize in high quality work in architectural cladding and restoration of lead, copper, zinc and stainless steel, and will provide experience and differing viewpoints relating to a new approach to be taken by the National Trust for Scotland, demonstrated at its Newhailes site.
Vice-Convenor of Scotland Branch Mark Watson said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity to learn alongside fellow IHBC members, and explore the intricacies of working lead, zinc and other metals on roofs from D Blake and Co, and then to see the National Trust for Scotland flagship property at nearby Newhailes, seat of the Scottish enlightenment, just before its first major revamp since opening to the public’.
The seminar will be of interest to anyone interested in roofing, the protection of Scottish’s historic environment, and all those involved in conservation-related policy and decision-making.
