This 1-day course will cover the pertinent issues concerning historic and traditional buildings, and best practice for build quality strategies and processes. It will begin with the concept of project management and project supervision, including how these skills apply in the historic environment and how dealing with it is different. The course will then go through the various stages including project initiation, feasibility, development, delivery, completion and end with occupation of the building and its continued care. There will also be a focus on developing work proposals, significance analysis, and heritage impact assessments, including justifying them in a way that balances the full range of issues from historic importance to commercial and use considerations.
Work examples will cover educational, social housing, commercial development and high profile and prestigious conservation work in various crafts ranging from masonry to historic decoration.
At the end of the day, you will be confident in your ability to successfully deploy project management and supervision to historic and traditional buildings.
