Event details

Conservation on the Edge of George Heriot’s School Old Building Terrace:

A presentation on the phased remedial works to the decorative masonry balustrade. Constructed in 1628, the balustrade has suffered numerous items of defect, damage and decay during over nearly 400 years of service including localised subsidence of terrace construction, physical impact by people and latterly vehicles, contour scaling of moulding detail and environmental pollution soiling. This presentation will describe the efficacy of designed remedial works to reverse identified items of defect damage and decay.
