Fire In Old Buildings Seminar

Drawing on lessons learned from recent high-profile fires, this one day seminar from the SPAB will look at all aspects of fire prevention and management in historic buildings, as well as approaches to reconstruction when the worst happens.

Morning sessions from expert speakers will include understanding the main causes of fire in historic buildings, what detection and suppression systems best suit them, how to balance fire prevention systems with original building fabric, and an overview of new research. The afternoon will consider immediate responses to fire, and debate the SPAB approach to dealing with the aftermath of a fire in a historic building. This will be followed by case studies illustrating different approaches to rebuilding, before a final discussion opened out to the audience.
