What approach does a Conservation Architect take when starting the refurbishment of a Historic Building? 

Having worked on Conservation projects at Roger Mears Architects (RMA) since 2007, Sarah Khan has a wealth of knowledge on diagnosing historic buildings. In this 2.5 hour seminar she will explain how the practice of structured, methodical building pathology is used to identify faults in historic buildings to inform refurbishment projects. 

This seminar will give you a full introduction to an holistic approach of studying and understanding historic buildings.
