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. Modules are class taught and supplemented by regular workshops which include site visits and on campus guest lectures.
Minimum 2nd Class Honours degree. Students with relevant and extensive industry experience will also be considered.
Modules include: History of buildings and towns; building conservation; adaptive re-use; building recording and analysis; conservative repair; urban regeneration; dissertation (triple module).
Modules area assessed in various ways, including written assignment work, group presentations and examinations.
