CIOB annual conservation conference tackles heritage and sustainability

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has announced that its annual conservation conference, entitled "Balancing Heritage and Sustainability", is returning for 2021 on 21 April.

The conference focusses on sustainability in relation to heritage and traditional buildings and dealing with climate change.

High-profile speakers from different fields in the UK and internationallly will set out what is possible in terms of change for so-called "hard to treat" buildings.

This virtual conference will engage the audience to explore not just what has been achieved but what needs to be done in the future, and how this might be possible to achieve these aims.

Themes explored will include best practice, retrofit standards, science and the latest research as well as the unexpected consequences of inappropriate interventions to traditional buildings.

The conference will hear from speakers from organisations including Historic England and English Heritage.

The conference will run from 9.00am-5.30pm and can be booked here.
