The SPAB Approach


The SPAB Approach to building conservation is based on understanding, care and conservative repair. It is a simple message of sustainability. Through protection of original fabric the stories and beauty of old buildings can be enjoyed now and for generations to come. This approach is a unique combination of the theoretical and the practical.

In autumn 2017 the SPAB published a guide to our approach to conservation, written by SPAB director Matthew Slocombe. Download the SPAB Approach.
