The Context journal article by IHBC Member John Edwards on the role of the core British Standard in conservation, ‘Why building conservation needs BS 7913’, has now been posted on IHBC’s Conservation Wiki, securing even wider awareness of a core practitioner’s publication that is still available to IHBC members at up to £60 below the list price.
John Edwards writes in Context:
There are… numerous British and European standards that lay down best practice within the heritage sector, and the one that should have the most positive impact is BS 7913: Guide to the Conservation of Historic Buildings, which was published on 31 December 2013.
Unlike any other ‘guide’, this was produced by a broad range of experts from all professions, representing some of the most respected professional and heritage organisations from across the UK, including the IHBC. It went through an extensive public consultation process, which makes it the most authoritative UK-wide guidance on building conservation.
