National Maintenance Week (20-27 November 2020) is the SPAB’s annual reminder to give your home, whether it’s a 1930s semi-detached or a medieval manor, a maintenance check before the winter months.
Alongside resources and top tips for keeping buildings in good condition, SPAB’s National Maintenance Week 2020 includes a number of free online events to help owners and users get to know their old buildings better and take practical action to look after them.
Maintenance Matters in Ireland
20 November 2020, 12:00 - 13:00
Live Online Lecture
Free - registration required
In order to be able to care for a building, it is important that you understand it. This illustrated lecture will focus on identifying and tackling commonly-encountered maintenance issues for old buildings across Ireland, with reference to typical building forms, materials and environmental conditions. This talk aims to make building maintenance accessible to all and focus on the two main activities of maintenance, which are, looking (for the problem) and doing! (addressing the problem).
Presented by Jamie McNamara, SPAB Trustee & Ireland Guardian. Jamie has worked with the conservation of canals, churches, city regeneration schemes and within the traditional skills area.
The lecture is free to attend, but please register your place in advance.
