Traditional Buildings Health Check

A wide range of organisations and individuals care for the historic environment across the private, public and voluntary sectors.

Organisation:Stirling City Heritage Trust, Historic Environment Scotland and Construction Industry Training Board
Project title:Traditional Buildings Health Check

The Traditional Buildings Health Check (TBHC) was a unique 5-year pilot project (2013-18) funded by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) and the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), and designed, delivered and managed by Stirling City Heritage Trust (SCHT).   Based on a successful European model, the service aims to support and encourage owners of traditional buildings to understand and take a proactive approach to building repair and maintenance.

This not-for-profit membership based service provides impartial and expert advice including a hands-on inspection and service and a prioritised condition report.  Members receive year round support from the TBHC team.

The service is open to all traditional buildings in Stirling city boundary and as such aims to mainstream repair of the built heritage using an appropriately skilled workforce and suitable materials.   With 275 members over the course of the pilot period, Stirling City Heritage Trust is continuing TBHC from April 2018 with funding from Historic Environment Scotland.
