SLCT – Damp in Buildings

17 September 2021 - 09:30 - 16:30


Are you dealing with damp problems? Then this is for you!

Building failure needs to be looked at holistically. Dampness, in particular, is poorly understood and widely misdiagnosed.

We are pleased to welcome back Mike Parrett with his back to basics approach, getting to grips with where damp comes from and offers real, practical advice on how to deal with it.

Topics include:

  • Latest knowledge on damp in buildings from the expert
  • Checking you have the right equipment to investigate damp problems
  • Adopting the right approach
  • Correctly identify damp problems
  • Gain real world knowledge through case studies
  • Use checklists to verify your diagnosis

Mike will also be addressing the very real issues that are likely to result from the increase in the deluges of rainfall we have all been experiencing in the last few years, ‘cutting edge’ stuff for real.

About the Speaker:

Michael is a building pathologist, chartered building surveyor, chartered building engineer, chartered building consultant and chartered scientist with an vast experience and knowledge of building pathology diagnosing building failures relating to dampness and flooding both in the UK and around the world. He graduated with a Masters degree from the University of Cambridge where he read interdisciplinary design for the built environment.

Michael’s appearance in the BBC 2 series Raising the Roof, helped establish the extreme rarity of Rising Damp caused by damp proof course failure and the futility of chemical injection. He has produced a comprehensive critically acclaimed six part video series on building pathology with worldwide distribution and in 2003 his best-selling co-authored book Diagnosing Damp, the first independent practitioners’ guide on dampness, was published by RICS Books.
