IHBC Trustee and consultant, and lead author on the British Standard 7913, on historic building conservation, John Edwards, is preparing an article on the practical application of the Standard, and is seeking examples where the document – either in its current (2103) or earlier (19xx) form – has been useful to IHBC members and colleagues.
John Edwards said: ‘BS 7913 is about driving up standards and consistency for everyone involved with older buildings and by highlighting how useful it is we can ensure even greater use of this important standard’.
Any suggestions for examples may be sent to John at firstname.lastname@example.org
Members may also be interested to note that another course on the application of BS 7913 will take place in Birmingham on 5 October, following two successful events in London and Manchester at which the IHBC hosted its services.
