HPA attend the STBA & SPAB Conference
HPA Director, Zoe Hooton, and Heritage & Planning Consultant, Jess Barrow, attended the STBA & SPAB Scotland Annual Conference 2022 this week in Edinburgh.
This year, the conference was focused around Sustaining Buildings, and attendees from all across the UK gathered in Edinburgh at the fantastic Dovecot Studios to discuss how traditional buildings can help us meet net carbon zero, whilst still maintaining the integrity of our built heritage.
The event saw numerous industry experts presenting ideas and research findings throughout the day, as well as Q&A sessions and workshops in retrofit and the green agenda.
SPAB (Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) is a charity co-founded by William Morris in 1877, the manifesto for which still underpins the Society’s activities today. STBA (Sustainable Traditional Building Alliance) is made up of the UK’s leading organisations associated with the conservation and improvement of traditional buildings, and their aim is to deliver sustainable but traditional built environments.
Big thanks to all the guest speakers – overall it was a really inspiring event with some wonderful presentations and discussions and the HPA team are looking forward to what 2023 has to bring.
