The session will explore the important decisions that architects face, when balancing sustainable design principles with conservation practice in historic or listed properties in sensitive locations.
We explore how to balance apparently conflicting requirements; we review the planning framework, and we ask what factors you need to take into consideration to reach a compromise with your client.
Topics covered include:
- the specification of materials
- construction and renovation techniques
- in-depth case studies of recent projects involving historic buildings
There will be time for delegates to share experiences of their own projects, and you are welcome to send queries in advance for speakers to respond to on the day.
