Heritage and Sustainability in Action - Spring CPD Series

We are all aware of the current climate emergency and the potential for the built environment to help mitigate climate change. At the SPAB, we strongly believe that sensitive improvement and repair of historic buildings is a sustainable approach, which can reduce the impact of the built environment on the climate. 

This series of CPD sessions will explore how to implement sustainable approaches to traditionally constructed buildings. By examining real-world examples of sympathetic repair and retrofit techniques successfully used in domestic and ecclesiastical settings, delegates will learn how to use these methods in their own work. In particular, the case studies will demonstrate the implementation of techniques in common heritage building types in the UK including timber framed and solid wall construction.

The series features four sessions with one-hour lectures and 30 minutes Q&A to allow delegates the chance to receive detailed answers to their questions. All lectures will be accompanied by a resource list and a recording of the session, which can be view at the attendee’s leisure for up to one week after the session.

Session 4 - Services

Tuesday 20 April 2021, 12.00-13.30 (BST)

This session will include a range of case studies demonstrating sensitive upgrading of services for the benefit of historic buildings, sustainability and carbon reduction.
