Your FIRST FREE IHBC Xmas gift to colleagues: Tell them about IHBC’s Conservation Wiki – Our digital digest for the development and construction sector

websiteYou can help make life easier for your colleagues – and yourself – this Christmas by encouraging them to check out the IHBC’s Conservation Wiki Homepage, our free digital ‘Conservation Digest’ aimed at mainstream construction and development sector practitioners.

IHBC Director Seán O’Reilly said: ‘IHBC’s Conservation Wiki is the perfect platform for sharing knowledge and finding answers about the built and historic environment.  It’s specially tailored to respond to the interdisciplinary workplaces in which our members often find themselves offering their conservation advice and leadership.’

‘Our Wiki resource encompasses everything from the restoration of cathedrals to the management of conservation areas and the retrofitting of properties to improve their performance.  It is a perfect platform for mainstream practitioners to engage with and find out more about any aspect of conservation.’

‘Helping your colleagues understand conservation through our Conservation Wiki will make your own life easier too, as the more they are aware of conservation proper, the easier your life will be too.  It’s all free of course too, to everyone!’

‘And if you think they should become more skilled in conservation, why not get them to join the IHBC for a year, and try out the full benefits of IHBC membership.  You can just pass on a membership flier from your next Context, or get them to sign up online.’

Historic places attract people, activity and investment, giving new life to their communities and helping make places more competitive. They play a central role in regenerating towns, cities and rural areas all around the UK, in particular, helping to repopulate inner-city areas…

The Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) is the professional body for building conservation practitioners and historic environment experts working in the United Kingdom. It exists to establish, develop and maintain the highest standards of conservation practice, to support the effective protection and enhancement of the historic environment, and to promote heritage-led regeneration and access to the historic environment for all. It has a network of regional and national branches around the UK…

Using internationally-recognised standards, IHBC assesses and regulates conservation practitioners. It works to provide regular training, continuing professional development (CPD) and education events, as well as lobbying at international, national, regional and local levels.

The IHBC is passionate about making knowledge freely-available. This helps defragment the industry, spread best practice, promote innovation and prevent mistakes.

Conservation Wiki has been created to further this ambition and IHBC is calling on its members, and others to contribute to this valuable and growing resource for the benefit of all.

Conservation Wiki is part of the Designing Buildings Wiki platform created to make construction industry knowledge freely available to everyone. Anyone can create articles about subjects they know and find articles about subjects they don’t.

Conservation Wiki is operated by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation.  It provides a platform for sharing knowledge about the conservation of the built and historic environment, from the restoration of cathedrals to the management of conservation areas and retrofitting period, traditional and modern properties to improve their performance.
