It provides a starting point for developing a strategy to maintain and encourage the availability of traditional materials for use in repairing existing buildings and creating new ones.

The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to create Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. It enables us to encourage understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and professionals and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
