CBCS – Building Conservation Summer School 2021

20 July - 24 July

**This course has been postponed until 2022**

The course offers the best practical introduction to Building Conservation available.    

Established experts will share their experience and knowledge with you – close up!

The full course provides 47 hours formal CPD.

This course runs over four and a half days at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester. Previously organised by RICS, it is now a Not-For-Profit joint venture by three of the most experienced conservation focussed Chartered Building Surveyors in the country – Marianne SuhrStephen Boniface and Duncan Philips.

The course is aimed at early career professionals who would like to get a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of building conservation from a large number of leading experts in one place at one time.  It will also be of interest to those who wish to gain additional building conservation knowledge to enhance their career and general understanding of the subject.  It is particularly suitable for students, Building Surveyors, Structural Engineers, Conservation Officers, Architects, building contractors and related conservation trades.

New for 2021 – A ‘Conservation Structural Engineering’ day has been added to the programme which will provide specific introduction to understanding and solving structural defects in historic buildings.  This day is an optional choice which you can choose instead of the lime practical day.

The full residential package includes: 4 nights ‘student’ accommodation (Sun, Mon, Tues, Weds). Dinner on Sun, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Mon, Tues and Weds, breakfast and packed lunch on Thursday. Refreshments during the breaks.
