Tune in to hear Mitchell Fotheringham discuss the Traditional Buildings Health Check (TBHC), a pilot project funded by Historic Environment Scotland and Construction Industry Training Board, which operated in Stirling from 2013 to 2018. The TBHC’s main objective was to inform property owners on the condition of their pre-1919 buildings through a detailed report produced by building inspectors. The report prioritises all defects and maintenance issues and provides advice on the traditional methods and materials which should be used in their repair.

Based on the positive results at the end of the pilot period, Stirling City Heritage Trust has continued with this unique service in Stirling as part of the core activities of the Trust. Learn more about the innovative project and the potental applications of the scheme nationwide. 

About the speaker:

Mitchell Fotheringham BSc Hons

I originally studied Architectural Conservation then went on to study Building Surveying and graduated in 2016, I worked for The Scottish Lime Center trust as a graduate surveyor where I worked on projects such as Glasgow School of Art (After the first fire) and a slate and stone survey of Cupar. I then worked as a surveyor and estimator for a roofing contractor who specialised in repair and maintenance projects in a wide range of industries ranging from naval bases to nuclear power stations. Since August last year, I have been one of the two inspectors in the TBHC team where I am working towards my chartership with the RICS.
