As a leading supplier of wooden windows and doors, and a window company that firmly believes replacement timber windows and doors look beautiful on traditional buildings, we believe that the repair, maintenance and sustainable development of traditional buildings is very important. That is why Oracle Windows Solutions support The Heritage Skills Hub wholeheartedly!
Any building constructed before 1919 is considered to be part of the traditional built environment or, A Heritage Building. This includes stately homes, religious buildings and scheduled monuments, as well as domestic properties and industrial buildings.
What is the Heritage Skills Hub for?
The Heritage Skills Hub is supported by English Heritage and aims to raise the profile of Heritage Craft Skills through news, events, networking and collaboration.
What does it do?
Built Heritage includes all buildings constructed before 1919 and exists to support everyone from professionals such as architects and structural engineers, contractors, local authorities, volunteer and community groups, property owners, building preservation trusts, schools and training providers. Built Heritage aims to improve these people’s understanding of the skills and materials needed for the repair, maintenance and sustainable development of traditional buildings. There are over 9 million old buildings in the UK that are in need of retrofit, repair and maintenance, and their long-term protection and development depends on the specialist skill, knowledge and expertise of contractors, craftspeople and building professionals.
