Lurgan Townscape Heritage Initiative – VIRTUAL – Maintaining Chimneys, Roofs and Lofty Building Elements

24 November - 19:30 - 20:30


A live illustrated online Zoom presentation of the issues commonly found with high level building elements, focusing on chimneys but also looking at roof, parapet and central gutters along with other typical roof defects.

The talk will explore how these elements are best maintained and what to do when they go wrong in an appropriate conservation manner. Case studies, with a focus on Lurgan rooftops, will be included.

The talk will be presented by Lisa Edden, a Chartered Structural Engineer specialising in conservation and co-author of the guide “Roofs – A Guide to the Repair of Historic Roofs”, published by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht in 2010. Lisa is a regular lecturer on various Applied Building Conservation diplomas, as well for the Irish Georgian Society and the Building Limes Forum Ireland.

Hosted by the Lurgan Townscape Heritage Initiative, this talk is being held as part of  Maintenance Week NI 2020 (20th November to 27th November), in collaboration with the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) and Ulster Architectural Heritage (UAH).
