A new course one day has been developed by Edwards Hart for the CIOB Academy and will be delivered by Professor John Edwards using Edwards Hart and other case study material. In broad terms this course will highlight the necessity of inputting heritage management and significance into project management, but also that heritage management must be project managed. It will take participants from initiating a project to completion and into the operational management of a building. It will essentially include the management of risk and the management of quality.

According to Professor Edwards, a PRINCE 2 Certified Advanced Project Management Practitioner and the RICS iSURV lead on managing risk in building conservation projects: “Everything needs to be managed as a project, but in a proportionate way in being robust but not too bureaucratic”. Edwards added: “Even significance analysis and development of things like conservation management plans have to be project managed”. Edwards Hart have tailored authoritative project management methodologies which incorporate heritage management and all in accordance with BS 7913: 2013: Guide to the Conservation of Historic Buildings.

The course takes place in London on the 19th September 2018 and find out more here.
