The Engine Shed, Stirling

The successful HLF bid completes the funding jigsaw for the £8.9 million project to go ahead, adding to funding which has already been secured from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Scottish Government’s Young Scots Fund.

Confirmation of the funding follows on from full planning permission having been granted by Stirling Council. The Engine Shed will see the transformation of a derelict building into a world-leading education centre for building conservation in Scotland, creating and delivering educational resources and training on traditional buildings and materials.

As well as providing a centre of excellence for those already operating in the sector, it will also provide the opportunity for the sharing of knowledge and expertise through the creation of a ‘knowledge hub’ with events, exhibitions and activities for the general public.
