Event description

Description

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 concerned with places of worship of all sizes, types and location, and will be relevant both to new build, alterations and repairs. 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. The event is organised by the Historic Religious Buildings Alliance, with significant financial support from Purcell.



About 2 years months ago I attended one of you excellent training days in London-all about undertaking urgent repairs and applying for HLF grants. It was excellent. This gave me the confidence to take on the leadership of a project. Today we received HLF go-ahead for phase II (building) which will commence in January. In the scheme of things this project is not gargantuan: A small village church with an early Norman (pos Saxon) tower with unusual internal supporting structure. We are also undertaking improvements to introduce up-to-date facilities in our nave. Total cost of all the works is about 250k + VAT . I could not have led the team without the support of HRB advice and training day!”
