Building Conservation and Adaptation

The course focusses on the conservation of heritage buildings and sites and the proactive management of change in the historic built environment. The course concentrates on the re-use of existing buildings, including designated heritage assets, and explores the role historic buildings can play in the sustainable revitalisation of our towns and cities. Techniques of conservative repair, adaptation, retro-fitting and extension are scrutinised, and the legislative context of heritage planning is examined in depth. An appreciation of conservation philosophy and an understanding of heritage significance are common themes through the course: these provide a sound basis for decision making where change is needed to secure socially and economically viable solutions and sustaining active use.
