Dr. J Stewart Stirling

Stewart worked for many years as a chartered building surveyor in private practice in both Edinburgh and London, gaining extensive experience in the survey, repair, refurbishment and alteration of historic buildings throughout the UK. He took up an academic post in 1992, during which he was responsible for the development and direction of Heriot-Watt University's MSc programme in Building Conservation; he was also involved in wide range of research and consultancy projects, relating primarily to the technology and performance of older buildings, including his own doctoral research. Stewart has published widely and given many presentations on a variety of topics concerning the built heritage.

Stewart first joined Groves-Raines Architects Ltd in 2002, becoming responsible for some of the larger and more complex building conservation projects in the office including Cottier Theatre, Glasgow and Sumburgh Head Lighthouse and Visitor Centre in Shetland. He became leader of the conservation group before accepting the position of Director of Conservation in April 2014.
