Here at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust we were delighted to welcome back Mike Parrett to deliver another seminar dealing with the common problem of damp in buildings as part of the Penicuik House Project. Mike is co-author of the RICS best seller, ‘Diagnosing Damp’, the recognised primary reference work on dampness in buildings. Damp is a major maintenance issue for our built heritage and after decades of sales-led ‘solutions’, Mike’s back-to-basics approach gets to grips with where damp comes from – and offers real, practical advice to deal with problems.
We received fantastic feedback from those who attended this seminar with an audience that included building professionals from a wide range of organisations including Historic Scotland, Edinburgh World Heritage, National Trust for Scotland, local authorities and several architectural practices specialising in working with traditional buildings. Many attendees found Mike’s advice to be a real revelation as he has solved damp problems in over 30,000 properties without once chemically injecting a DPC!
