The principle aim of the project described in this case study was to explore upgrades to the walls in six tenement flats at a property in Glasgow. This was done in order to demonstrate that upgrades to mass masonry walls can both improve the thermal performance whilst retaining the moisture vapour permeability of the building fabric. Six different measures of insulation were trialled at this property.

The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage 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.
