The Union Street Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) training courses have been designed around the specific needs of traditional buildings in Aberdeen, addressing real issues and problems faced by building contractors, professionals and homeowners on a daily basis.
Led by Frew Conservation we have brought together a multi-disciplinary team of experienced and respected craftspeople and consultants to deliver this series of workshops and seminars.

The full-day workshops are aimed at building contractors and professionals but may also be of interest to homeowners with some background knowledge or understanding of traditional buildings.
