SSM Joins the Heritage Trust Network


We are proud to have joined the Heritage Trust Network as Corporate Supporters and to have been selected for their Talent Bank. Eugene Mullan will be attending the annual conference later this month to meet the local heritage groups which benefit from the peer-to-peer support the Network provides. We are keen to help them secure viable futures for neglected historic buildings by bringing our expertise in conservation, regeneration and community consultation to their projects.

A perfect example of how a town’s regeneration can be spearheaded by smaller conservation projects is our recently completed conservation and extension of a derelict Harbourmaster’s Office in Stranraer to form a community facility. The project was a key element of the Stranraer Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme for Dumfries and Galloway Council and part-funded by both Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government Regeneration Capital Grant Fund.
