A MULTI-MILLION pound project to create a “world-leading” education centre for building conservation has moved a step closer.

Historic Scotland’s Engine Shed scheme in Forthside, Stirling, has now appointed Esh 
Border Construction as contractor.

The next phase of the £8.9 million project will see the transformation of an unused building into an education facility that will deliver resources and training on traditional buildings and materials.

John Moore, construction director for Esh Border Construction in Scotland, said: “This is a really exciting project for Esh to be involved in and is exactly the kind of challenge we love to take on.”

David Mitchell, director of conservation at Historic Scotland, added: “The Engine Shed is set to become a leading hub for building conservation on both a national and international level. A wide range of education and training will be offered.”
