Damp is the enemy of old buildings and one of the most frequent issues that the SPAB is asked for advice on. In this session, the SPAB’s Technical & Research Director, Douglas Kent, explains the different forms of damp, what causes them, how they can be identified and the best ways to treat and prevent damp in old buildings.

Lunchtime CPD Series

The SPAB is pleased to offer a second series of its popular short introductory sessions on key subjects, first run in 2017. These are specially designed to give you a way to easily meet your CPD requirements and improve your understanding of building conservation during your lunch break. 

Held at our offices in central London, a short walk from Liverpool Street Station, we will be offering four sessions on core conservation topics, led by experts. Lunch is included in the ticket price and it is a great opportunity to meet likeminded people and discuss issues informing the care of historic buildings.

Other sessions in this series:
9 January     Repairing old Buildings: The SPAB Approach
6 February    Historic Building Legislation & Policy: Current Issues 
20 February  Mechanical & Electrical Services in Historic Buildings
