Free Course – Maintaining Older Property

January 6, 2020

Building on the success of last year, North East Scotland College is once again running an information evening for owners of historic property at Fraserburgh Campus. This information session is free of charge and takes place at Fraserburgh Campus on Tuesday 21st January 2020 from 6-9pm.

It is designed to highlight some of the unique challenges faced when living in an older building. The information session will share useful tips and advice – what to look out for in older property; how to remedy “potential” areas of concern before they become problems; how to approach small maintenance jobs and the steps to take when considering renovation.

Andrew Donn, Curriculum Quality Manager for Construction, Science and Computing at Fraserburgh Campus says, “This evening is relevant for anyone who owns and lives in an old building, who wants to learn how to spot potential issues, carry out simple repairs and who to approach for the bigger jobs. You don’t need to have any knowledge at all of building repair – that’s what this course is for.”

This training is fully funded as part of the Fraserburgh 2021 Heritage Regeneration Scheme, being delivered by Aberdeenshire Council with funding from Historic Environment Scotland and the Heritage Lottery Fund. The scheme is focused on restoring and enhancing Fraserburgh’s built heritage.

Individuals who wish to attend this Older Property Maintenance Information Evening must register by calling the College on 01346 506026 or by contacting
