A one day seminar (with IHBC member discount) has been organised by the Environment Study Centre exploring the best practice standard for the conservation of historic buildings (BS7913), to be held in London’s Somerset House on 1 June and in Manchester on 2 July.
IHBC Education Secretary David McDonald said: ‘Since its publication in December 2013, BS7913 has not received the attention it deserves. The IHBC welcomes this wonderful opportunity to learn more about this UK wide practice guidance.’
‘These seminars not only deal with the document itself, but also relate its use to the assessment of significance and dealing with day-to-day conservation issues. Both the excellent content and the 20% discount make these events great value CPD for IHBC members’.
