In order to achieve the CO2 reduction targets set by the Scottish government, it will be necessary to improve the energy efficiency of existing buildings. Within the total Scottish building stock, historic and traditionally constructed buildings are...

Available from: https://doi.org/10.5194/isprsarchives-XL-5-W2-91-2013

The North East of Scotland's construction method is similar to most popular building typologies in the UK. This typology can vary in term of external material (Granite, brick or stone) but with a secondary, usually timber sub frame with a lining on i...

Skills development for retrofitting a historic listed building in Scotland. (2013)
Journal Article
ABDEL-WAHAB, M. and BENNADJI, A. 2015. Skills development for retrofitting a historic listed building in Scotland. International journal of low-carbon technologies [online], 10(4), pages 347-353. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1093/ijlct/ctt043

With the current aim for a low carbon economy in Scotland, it becomes imperative to ensure that there are adequate workforce skills available to support meeting this aspiration. As such, the Scottish Government has developed a low carbon skills agend... Read More about Skills development for retrofitting a historic listed building in Scotland..

The nature of mass masonry granite walling and the potential for retrofit internal wall insulation strategies. (2013)
Journal Article
BUDA, G., TAYLOR, B. and BENNADJI, A. 2013. The nature of mass masonry granite walling and the potential for retrofit internal wall insulation strategies. Journal of building survey, appraisal and valuation [online], 2(1), pages 36-43. Available from: https://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/hsp/jbsav/2013/00000002/00000001/art00005

Traditional buildings constructed of solid granite walling that have timber framing with lath and plaster internal finish are not thermally efficient when compared with modern constructions. They are also termed hard-to-treat as they need special car... Read More about The nature of mass masonry granite walling and the potential for retrofit internal wall insulation strategies..
