Preserving Heritage07/11/18

Preserving historic buildings is vital to understanding our nation’s heritage. In addition, it is an environmentally responsible practice. Existing buildings can often be energy efficient through their use of good ventilation, durable materials, and spatial relationships. Some practical benefits of historic preservation include retention of history & authenticity, economic benefits, retention of building materials and reuse of infrastructure.

Through this, we are delighted to welcome along to this breakfast briefing, Sunderland City Council, Datim Building Contractors.

We will hear from:
– Ian Smithwhite at Sunderland City Council who will give an overview of Roker Pier, the restoration work which has being carried out and the operation of it as a whole including visitor attraction space.
– Tim Barrett at Datim Building Contractors who will present on the Award winning Lindisfarne Castle plus some general issues of working on a heritage building project
– Case study on the Darlington Hippodrome
