To celebrate we asked SPAB Scholar Tríona Byrne to write about her work as a conservation engineer
News - Scholarship
It is with great sadness that we announce the recent death of Janet Locke. Janet was a SPAB Scholar in 1950 along with Donald Insall, Cecil Searle, Peter Locke and Pamela Cunnington. She will be remembered as an intelligent and sensitive architect.
A nine-month, hands-on learning experience aimed at craftspeople, architects, surveyors and engineers.
The SPAB Scholarship is a prestigious training scheme for young building professionals to gain practical building repair skills from the some of the UK’s most experienced craftspeople. Surveyor Daniel Shemming and architects Christian Montez, Holly Spilsbury and Bethan Watson have embarked on a programme of site, workshop and studio visits across the country.
As our new Scholars prepare for their year of conservation discoveries, we look to a valued past Scholar. In June 2018 local Scholar Peter Carey (1977) showed us behind the scenes of the redevelopment of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, a building that he had been passionate about for decades.
