Servicing Historical Buildings
Tuesday 13th November 2018
Heat, Light, Sound- and some smells - the stories of the building services in Glasgow City Chambers.
Dr Nina Baker will draw on both these interests to introduce the history of how Glasgow's Victorian city chambers were built and the choices that were made for the building's services at a time of transition to new technologies.
The Integration of Services in Historic Buildings
Professor Stuart MacPherson will discuss the issues around the integration of new services installations in historic buildings. He will give an engineer’s perspective on working in design teams with architects and structural engineers. His presentation explores some of the concerns around the subject, gives advice on key considerations that apply to most historic buildings and gives a frank account of where both engineers and architects could improve their general approach and their design processes to achieve better outcomes.
