Since ASCHB began 50 years ago conservation knowledge and skills have grown enormously to enable practical futures for the most challenging historic places. Even so, and despite mainstream construction producing problematic buildings that are less long-lived and arguably less energy-efficient than those traditionally constructed, conservation is still seen as a niche activity. This conference will look at developments in conservation over the last 50 years, consider how we can maintain its specialist expertise and ponder how we can turn the wider construction industry from demolition and rebuild to retention and adaptation.
Speakers will include Dr. Ian Bristow, John Fidler, Paul Drury, Dave Chetwyn, Frances Cambrook, Matthew Slocombe and Maggie Goodall, Adam Menuge, Richard Woolf, Chris Wood, Ingval Maxwell, Dean Sully, Chris Twinn and Jacqui Goddard.
We are holding the conference in St Martin-in-the-Fields: The Renewal Project was the subject of Robert Kennett’s article in ASCHB Transactions Volume 32.
