Scottish Lime Centre

Lime Mortars and Masonry Repairs Training  

IMG_4376Stephen McConnell of our office recently completed a number of practical training sessions at The Scottish Lime Centre including making quicklime, slaking lime, mixing lime mortars, preparing and repointing stone walls, applying renders and undertaking different types of stone repairs. Stephen said ‘the courses were an ideal combination of practical and seminar based sessions giving a thorough overview of lime based products and masonry repairs – it was great to use traditional materials and understand the heritage skills required for the various repairs that we specify for our projects’.
