Workshop: heritage buildings – impacts of damp & moisture

05 October 2017

Cardiff

As our climate changes, the effects of damp and moisture on heritage buildings are becoming increasingly important. This workshop seeks to enhance the exchange of information between heritage building professionals and the research community by considering the latest evidence on, for example:

  • the impacts of rainwater penetration
  • whether changes in rainfall patterns may be pushing historic buildings materials and methods beyond their ability to cope
  • the impact of changing damp and moisture levels on health and wellbeing.

Working with CADW, the Welsh Government’s historic environment service, we aim to ensure that findings from current research are shared across the sector, and that ideas and collaborations for future research are developed.

By invitation only – please contact Phil Sivell if you would like to take part.
