Event Information

We are delighted to announce a collaboration between the RIAI and the Heritage Contractors Register to 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.

The series will begin on Thursday 24 June, 12.00 - 13.30 with a presentation on ' Nano Nagle Place – genesis of the project, preparation of design and implementation'

This talk will be presented by:  

  • Pat Ruane MRIAI, RIAI Grade 1 Conservation Architect, Architectural Conservation Officer Cork City Council and
  • Gareth O’Callaghan MRIAI, RIAI Grade 1 Conservation Architect, JCA Architects.
