HRBA – Planning and Managing Major Building Projects in Places of Worship

21 November 2019 - 09:30 - 16:30

The day will help you manage all stages of a building project in a place of worship, from start up through to making sure you achieve the benefits over the long term. It is aimed at those looking after places of worship of all sizes, types and location, and will be relevant both to alterations and repairs and community projects. Although focusing on projects of a significant size, many of the principles apply in simplified form to smaller projects, and the day should be useful whatever the size of project being considered. It will be useful both to those who are directly responsible for a single project in a single building, and those who have an oversight role for a number of religious buildings.

The day assumes you already know what you want to do, and takes you forward from there, including setting up a project team, fund raising, obtaining relevant permissions, managing building professionals, keeping everyone engaged, and ensuring the project brings the desired benefits over the longer term. The speakers have hands on experience of building projects in places of worship. The day will be practical and detailed, equipping you to make a better job of managing your building project. You will also hear from completed projects and the people who actually made them happen and their experiences, good and bad!

The event is organised by the Historic Religious Buildings Alliance, with significant administrative and financial support from Purcell. We have also received considerable support from the Diocese of Leeds (CofE).
