RICS & SPAB Building Conservation Summer School 2019
15 September - 09:00 - 19 September - 19:30
One in five buildings in the UK date from before 1914, meaning that surveyors of all disciplines are more than likely to encounter such buildings as part of their daily work. Advising clients on traditional and listed buildings can no longer be dismissed as a niche area but is instead becoming a part of surveyors’ mainstream practice. It is essential therefore that you fully understand building conservation and surveying techniques for historic and listed properties to allow you to meet the demands of his changing market and ensure you are able to operate with due care and diligence.
Now in its 16th year, this unique hands on programme, designed by the RICS Building Conservation Forum in conjunction with the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB), gives attendees a vital introduction to building conservation, with a view to ensuring that those that conserve our nation’s heritage will have the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to ensure its protection.
Spanning five days, this event aims to reinforce undergraduate and graduate training in traditional buildings, construction techniques and materials, as well as support new surveyors and other specialists in this field. The course also provides essential continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for qualified members.
Don’t miss your opportunity to take part in this crucial event allowing you to validate your status as a building conservation specialist, demonstrate to clients and employers your knowledge and expertise in building conservation and secure more work.
