RIBA Material Conservation Course - York

Do you have a passion for conservation architecture? Are you interested in developing your knowledge of conservation materials? Join us to discuss different aspects of traditional conservation materials including stone, brick, mortar and timber, using a selection of case studies.

Different aspects of traditional conservation materials including stone, brick, mortar, and timber, through the use of different case studies will be covered in this seminar.

The seminar will discuss the different challenges faced with the repair of historic buildings using case studies from inception to completion and explore the requirements to understand the historic asset, record condition, identify necessary repair and implement proposals based on sound conservation principles whilst meeting the challenges of unforeseen issues along the way.

The case studies will consider access, temporary protection, surveys and a practical approach to the repair of failed and defective materials to include stone, slate, timber, lead, faience, decorative plasterwork and ironwork drawing from the experience of a number of completed projects.
