Edwards Hart have created the CIOB’s Building Conservation Certification scheme. This followed research and face to face consultation with the major heritage bodies. This is not a new project as it has been in development over the past three years, but it is now nearing completion. It is potentially ground breaking as it is the only scheme of its kind to certify individuals that work for contractors. This not only provides the opportunity for such individuals to demonstrate their competence, but then permits clients to seek out contractors who employ individuals that are certified. This final stage involved developing and delivering the training of Assessors.
Connected with this Edwards Hart have produced a webinar for the CIOB Academy that explains what building conservation is, along with the Certification scheme and have also developed associated training courses for the CIOB Academy.
Edwards Hart have a track record in undertaking such projects and have undertaken similar work for the Federation of Master Builders, the Construction Industry Training Board and the National Trust.
