The Engine Shed: Conservation and Education

As part of Stirling Science Festival

The Engine Shed is Scotland’s building conservation centre, based in Stirling. It serves as a hub for building and conservation professionals and the public, and is part of Historic Environment Scotland, the lead public body set up to investigate, care for and promote Scotland’s historic environment.

At the Engine Shed we use scientific analysis of building materials to help conserve more than 300 properties in our care. Similarly, the Digital Documentation Team uses state of the art digital technology to document our heritage in 3D.

As part of Stirling Science Festival, we will guide you through some of our latest work!

 

Building a future for our past: conservation and education at the Engine Shed

We invite you to join us on a virtual tour of the Engine Shed. In this short film, six members of staff will tell you about their work and the building. You will hear from members of our Technical Outreach and Education Team, Conservation Science team, and our Digital Documentation and Digital Innovation Team.

As part of Stirling Science Festival, we have compiled a range videos, interactive models, downloads and links to find out more about our work.

Although the Engine Shed is closed for the moment, our team are still continuing their research and work. Find out more at www.engineshed.scot.
