Rothesay Tenement Maintenance

Conservation & Retrofit, Housing

Working with Annie Flint Associates, we prepared a maintenance guide to help owners who had problems with common ownership issues. Rothesay has a high number of tenemental properties, often owned by absentee owners. This has caused problems in organising basic repairs and led to decay in a number of properties within the THI area.

In a follow up exercise, we inspected a number of key buildings and held open day meetings with owners to encourage them to apply for grant aid and carry out much needed repairs. A tall, vehicle mounted, mast camera was used to provide close up photos of roofs and gutters which could then be shown to owners. A video with commentary by John Gilbert, was made of each property.
