Dublin Civic Trust CPD Courses
Dublin Civic Trust’s autumn programme of CPD courses is now booking online.
Structural Repairs to Derelict and Ruined Structures
Date: Wednesday 24th October 2012
Time: 9:30am - 5:00pm, Registration from 9:15am - 9:30am sharp
One Day Seminar Ian Hume, DIC, DiplConsAA, CEng, MIStructE, IHBC Conservation Accredited Engineer and former Chief Engineer, English Heritage
Ian Hume is a leading conservation accredited engineer who has been involved in the conservation of historic buildings across the UK for over 30 years. He served as Chief Engineer of the Conservation Engineering team of English Heritage from 1988 to 1998 and now operates in private practice. Major conservation works have included the mausoleum at Castle Howard, the Ironbridge, and Leigh Court barn in Worcestershire. He lectures frequently on conservation engineering and is an active member of the UK Conservation Accreditation Register for Engineers (CARE).
This stimulating day of lectures will focus on best practice repair and consolidation of derelict and ruined buildings. These structures do not often feature in conservation philosophy or education, in spite of presenting some of the most challenging engineering demands exhibited by any historic edifice. This seminar will focus on how conservation engineers, architects and related professionals must temper and adapt the philosophy of conserving 'as found' and of 'minimum intervention' with their responsibility for the safety and structural integrity of derelict buildings and ruined structures. The seminar will include a site visit with Ian Hume to a derelict property in central Dublin, affording attendees a unique opportunity to assess common structural repair issues on-site with one of the most experienced professionals in the field of conservation engineering.
