Professor John Edwards will present the essentials of building conservation at the Construction Wales Innovation Centre, St David’s Day talk on the 1st March in Swansea. In this afternoon session, available free of charge, Professor Edwards will cover a range of issues including the new Wales Heritage Act and what it means to those applying for listed building consent and covering heritage impact assessments and heritage impact statements which are new requirements in Wales. This will be useful as a refresher on best practice for those already involved with older and historic buildings, including guidance on how to follow BS 7913: 2013: Guide to the Conservation of Historic Buildings. It also provides a good introduction to those that have a general interest or want to get involved in building conservation. See here for more information.
