things are in a bit of a frenzy here at THI HQ with our Market Place consultation really taking off, building schemes working up to full grant applications, visits from the HLF, a hands-on stone carving day for pupils at The Prescot School, a new Historic Environment Intern starting working with us and Atherton Street public realm nearing completion.
We are delighted to let you know that we have another FREE heritage training day in the offing – I suppose the title of this post has already given that away! :-)
The Training day is titled:
Writing Specifications for Conservation Projects.
It will take place on Friday 19 August 2016 in Prescot (venue TBC).
The training will be delivered by Alan Gardner of Alan Gardner Associates. Alan is a Chartered Building Surveyor with Accreditation in Conservation and his background before qualifying is construction. A SPAB Lethaby Scholar, Alan has been the contract manager (often writing the specifications for) major heritage projects like:
- The multi-million Heritage Lottery Fund-supported restoration and re-use of the Grade II* Listed All Souls Church in Bolton – an enormous redundant church that has been brought back to use
- Another THI – Edgar Wood and Middleton THI – repairing and restoring architecturally-ahead-of-their-time Victorian and Edwardian houses, churches and school
- The recent repairs to the Headquarters of the SPAB in Spitalfields, London!
The contents of the training day are below. The nature of the training means it is primarily aimed at architects, building surveyors, conservation officer or anyone involved in the repair or restoration of old buildings, but it is free for anyone to attend, just make sure you have boked a place in advance, as places are limited.

Hope to see you there!
