  • The course has been curated by the SCSI and its Conservation Committee to provide an introduction to Building Conservation in Ireland.  It aims to provide an introductory level of knowledge and understanding for professionals who work with, or are interested in working with traditional buildings. Participants may be new to historic buildings, or currently deal with them in some capacity, and in doing so may wish to compliment this working experience with the formal learning offered by the course. A range of experts from Ireland and the UK will share their knowledge and experiences through lectures and case studies each day.


    Indicative course topics:

    Day 1: Conservation philosophy, heritage, significance and legislation

    Day 2: Inspection, recording and structure

    Day 3: Traditional materials and techniques

    Day 4: Dampness, services, retrofit and building regulations

    Day 5: Works procurement, specification, cost and management

    Please find an indicative timetable and speaker list here


    All lecture recordings will be made available to participants for a period of time after each day, allowing participants who may not be able to attend in person to catch up on any lectures they miss.
