About the  RIAI Conservation / Meet the Craftsman CPD Series

The RIAI and the Heritage Contractors Register will present a new monthly RIAI Conservation / Meet the Craftsman CPD Series. The aim of this CPD series is to support the maintenance of a high level of professional competence among practitioners whose work involves protected structures and other significant elements of the architectural heritage. The presentations will focus on both the philosophy of conservation and the management of materials on conservation projects.

Taking part in the series will provide Architects, as specifiers for heritage projects, with insight into how the works they specify are carried out by craftsmen in heritage projects.  Each talk will include the craftsman’s personal perspective on the conservation and restoration works in which they specialise.
