Advanced Conservation Course - Cambridge

​Do you have a passion for conservation architecture? Have you already attended the RIBA four day conservation course or have a conservation qualification? Are you interested in developing your conservation and adaptation knowledge and skills further?

The RIBA Conservation Accreditation Scheme is based on progressing through three levels from Conservation Registrant, implying awareness of the subject, to the formal accreditation levels of Conservation Architect and finally Specialist Conservation Architect demonstrating expertise. The purpose of the two day course is to support this progression by focusing on the conservation process and elements and materials not covered in the introductory four day course. The modules are based once again on the internationally recognised ICOMOS Guidelines for Education and Training.

Attending the course will help you develop critical awareness and knowledge of architectural conservation procedures in order to apply theory in practice, as well as detailed analysis of structure, construction and services during the Technical Design stage.

Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at architects and other built environment professionals who have attended the RIBA four day conservation course or other conservation courses, and wish to progress their specialism in conservation and who:

  • wish to progress their knowledge in conservation architecture
  • want to further their practical knowledge and skills in conservation
  • wish to refresh their knowledge or formalise learning from experience in the field
  • need to build up a portfolio of evidence to support applications to RIBA and other conservation accreditation schemes.
