Historic Environment Scotland - Retrofit at SpACE
SpACE stands for Space for architecture, Carbon and Environment. It is a recent public platform located at the old Lauriston Fire Station, which is now a part of the Edinburgh College of art Building. This exhibition space will allow the people of Edinburgh to engage with topics related to design and the built environment in the setting of achieving net-zero carbon by 2030.

This full day conference is aimed at practitioners with a role in upgrading and adapting Scotland’s historic built environment to meet the on-going challenge of climate change.
In line with this, there will be a focus on the energy retrofit of traditional buildings with specialists from Historic Environment Scotland leading the discussion on key principles and best practice in this area. This will be demonstrated through a series of talks showcasing new guidance as well as exemplar case studies developed by the team of researchers and professionals at Historic Environment Scotland.
Partners such as the Lister Housing Co-operative, Community Housing Trust, and Zero Waste Scotland will also enrich the discussion by offering their experience and best practice in energy retrofit projects in Scotland.
There will be opportunities for audience members to network and participate in the debate through questions and discussion.
