Course Objective:

The aim of the module is to provide participants with an introduction to the principles and practice of architectural conservation. Participants should finish the course with enough awareness of the concepts and of the tools available to form the basis for a responsible approach to work on protected structures and on our architectural heritage in general.

Phase 3 Assessment             40 Structured

Course Format:
The Module will be structured in three phases:

Phase 1: The Document Pack
A Conservation Document Pack will be distributed in early January. Participants will be expected to read and familiarise themselves with the contents of the documents in the pack before Phase 2 begins.

Phase 2: Lecture Sessions
This Phase will be scheduled for six days over two weeks consisting of in-classroom seminars and discussions, a guided site visit to a protected structure, live lime demonstrations and a guided tour of the Irish Architectural Archive. 

Phase 3: Assessment
The assessment will consist of one exercise involving both factual and scenario-based questions. The exercise, which will be ‘open-book’ format, will be issued to participants for completion within a given time frame but at a location (home, office . . .) of their own choosing. 

The Assessment Exercise will be issued on Friday 22nd Feburary 2019 and must be returned by Friday 22 March 2019*.
