Event description

Description

Different aspects of traditional conservation materials including stone, brick, mortar, and timber, through the use of different case studies will be covered in this seminar.

Morning session:
The morning seminar will discuss the different challenges faced with the repair of historic buildings using case studies from inception to completion and explore the requirements to understand the historic asset, record condition, identify necessary repair and implement proposals based on sound conservation principles whilst meeting the challenges of unforeseen issues along the way. The case studies will consider access, temporary protection, surveys and a practical approach to the repair of failed and defective materials to include stone, slate, timber, lead, faience, decorative plasterwork and ironwork drawing from the experience of a number of completed projects.

Afternoon session:
The afternoon session will allow delegates to understand the skills and application of repair techniques on traditional materials to include stone, brick, mortar, lead and plasterwork by a series of practical demonstrations by specialist contractors experienced in the conservation of historic buildings in tandem with an open question forum.
