EURAC – SBE21 Heritage Conference: Renovating Historic Buildings for a Low-Carbon Built Heritage

14 April - 16 April
Bolzano/Bozen Italy Italy + Google Map

Universally recognised as emblems of many cities, historic buildings account for a quarter of Europe’s existing construction. Retrofitting such buildings presents many opportunities for reducing carbon emissions but can also present many challenges for preserving historic and aesthetic traits and as such, particular and specific care is vital. Given the unique character of each building, standard energy saving measures are often not viable. Instigating interdisciplinary procedures for renovation and developing affordable and efficient technologies which are compatible with conservation needs are essential for…

OUDCE – Harm in the Historic Environment

29 April - 09:45 - 12:00

The National Planning Policy, which incorporates England’s national heritage policy, requires that when considering the impact of a proposed development on the significance of a designated heritage asset, great weight should be given to the asset’s conservation.  By implication, it identifies four levels of harm that may be caused to the significance of heritage assets: total loss (this is often overlooked but is written in to the NPPF’s Paragraph 193), substantial harm, less than substantial harm, and no harm.  The…

OUDCE – Thinking of Consultancy

5 May - 10:00 - 6 May - 12:30

Thinking of consultancy is a short course for those thinking of a change in career.

This course looks at the demands and work of a consultant, the range of job types and the variety of instructions from desk-based assessments to expert witness presentations at Public Inquiry, in the County and Crown Courts. Intended for those thinking of a change…

National Planning Summit 2021

18 May - 19 May

Central Government and local neighbourhoods alike are pressing for higher quality designed buildings, schemes that reflect the needs of communities and more sustainable place making. This pressure on the planning sector is compounded by the need to tackle the nation’s ongoing housing crisis and an increasing number of environmental issues and considerations affecting new developments. Planners today must understand their role in helping deliver on the nation’s carbon neutral targets through a greater understanding of how technological and social trends…

OUDCE – ‘Scribble, Scribble, Scribble Mr Gibbon’: Publication Beyond the Site Report

8 June - 10:00 - 9 June - 12:30

Many archaeologists have had experience of writing site reports and many other formal documents in relation to the planning system. Desk Based Assessments, Written Schemes of Investigation, Specifications and Briefs have become so common that the style of these documents is beginning to characterise some excavation reports. Cut and paste techniques provide an easy segue from one report form to another, but what of publication beyond the site report? For those wishing to enhance their CVs and to stand out…

AMPS – Cities in a Changing World: Questions of Culture, Climate, and Design

16 June - 18 June

The premise of this conference is that the city is a site of interconnected problems. No single issue dominates its needs. No single discipline has the answers to its questions. As a result, the range of issues we deal with is vast. Urban designers are developing new models of settlement planning to address housing needs. Architects are renovating ever more existing buildings. Infrastructure designers are developing faster modes of transportation. Planners are demanding lower C02 emissions from industry. In a…

AMPS – A Focus on Pedagogy

20 April 2022 - 22 April 2022

Today the education sector is going through what most commentators see as an unprecedented period of change. The assumption is that in the wake of COVID-19, many standard modes of teaching and learning have changed forever. However, while the flux of recent times appears to have been enormous, many aspects of what we do remains the same. Our need to publish, bring in research funding, and get positive student assessments have not gone away. The knowledge we need to impart,…
