IHBC trustee highlights risk to RICS: ‘One in four UK buildings is at risk… so just follow BS 7913’

bs_7913_rcowanIHBC trustee John Edwards has featured an article in the November issue of the RICS Property Journal where he ‘argues that traditional buildings are in need of better treatment and understanding’ by the profession.

John Edwards writes: ‘Nearly all buildings are economic assets that should also be healthy places to occupy; but they are at risk if not treated properly. Such risks often arise, however, because of a lack of understanding and inappropriate treatment…’

‘Best practice… means following BS 7913: 2013, which gives authoritative guidance on how to deal with traditional and historic buildings’
