Refurbishment Case Study 21

This refurbishment case study describes the re-instatement of an early 20th century hydro system at a large visitor attraction in the Highlands of Scotland. In older buildings much focus has been on perceptions of high energy use and sub-optimal internal conditions. While these are undoubtedly true in places, work by Historic Scotland, and its successor Historic Environment Scotland, has shown that the energy demand for space heating in historic and traditional domestic buildings can be reduced substantially.
