Charlestown Workshops, Fife

The aim of this Masterclass is to provide professionals with a sound understanding of the philosophy of conservation and a better understanding of the relationship between structural engineering and conservation, of safety issues and of the aesthetics of conservation based structural repairs.

Led by Ian Hume, this is suitable for anyone involved in the structural repair of historic buildings, conservation officers, architects, engineers, site managers and others would find this seminar helpful. The course will consist of lectures, case studies and group activities.

It will examine the philosophy of conservation from a structural engineering point of view and will look at some structural repair methods for masonry, metal and timber.  The course is copiously illustrated with case studies of work carried out by Ian Hume over the last 40 years whilst working for English Heritage as its Head Of Conservation Engineering and in private practice.

Ian Hume has had many years of experience in dealing with the structural problems related to historic buildings. In 1975 he joined what eventually became English Heritage and served as Chief Engineer to that organisation from 1987 until 1997 when he took early retirement to become consultant conservation engineer. Ian has been teaching the structural aspects of the repair of historic buildings and structures for some 20 years at various universities on their postgraduate conservation courses.

New Design for Old Buildings

20 March 2018
St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, London, WC2N 4JJ

Join the SPAB for an exciting one day conference exploring examples of good new design for historic buildings.

Chaired by Mark Hines, this conference is a celebration of good new design for old buildings, whether domestic, commercial, religious or agricultural. The SPAB Approach is that sympathetic but imaginative new architecture can complement the old, and is an important factor in the conservation of historic buildings as well as the sustainability of the built environment into the future.

The programme will draw on themes and examples featured in Roger Hunt and Iain Boyd’s new book, New Design for Old Buildings, which will be available at a discount for all delegates. Presentations will explore the different approaches taken by architects dealing with a range of historic buildings, and the different solutions available which allow old and new to work together harmoniously. This is an unmissable opportunity to question and discuss cutting edge projects with the experts who designed them.

This is an essential event for anyone in the architectural community – both established practitioners and students – and will also be interesting to anyone responsible for the care of old buildings who may be seeking to undertake development or extension projects.

Understanding Building Conservation

London
4 Available Dates (check the link)

Overview

With over 6 million traditional buildings and over 500,000 listed monuments in the UK, there is a considerable need for building professionals to understand the nature and practicalities of conservation.  For this reason, we have developed a course looking at conservation for both residential and commercial property as well as historic monuments.

In accordance with the ICOMOS (International Council On Monuments and Sites) Training and Education Guideline and the latest British Standard on conservation of historic buildings (BS 7913: 2013) the course will introduce the philosophy behind conservation before going into detail regarding the technical analysis of buildings, ensembles and sites, diagnosing issues, identifying the best building conservation solutions, working with the various  stakeholders, and ultimately providing advice regarding best practice.

At the end of the 2 days, you will be confident in your ability to apply practical skills towards building conservation, will feel much better informed in this field of practice, and will receive a certificate of attainment from the CIOB if you pass the end of course test. Moreover, those who pass the course will be eligible for further recognition under the new CIOB Building Conservation Certification Scheme in 2017.
