Conservation in Practice
Module code: HS7252
This module will introduce you to professional practice within the realm of conservation. You'll explore current issues in urban conservation and its development and role in public policy in the UK and elsewhere. You'll gain an understanding of key processes in project management, including the use of external standards and guidelines, as well as the contribution of project partners and project teams. The course works through the full spectrum of typical project work in a local authority setting, such as making Article 4 Directions and serving Urgent Works Notices, and the output of private sector consultants. The module is complemented by an expansive programme of walking tours, practical building conservation sessions – such as lime mortar and traditional roofing, and mock design review panels.
