Seminar Overview

The seminar being held by the Conservation Group of Engineers Ireland, will bring together conservation industry experts and their extensive knowledge on the theme of tackling the widespread issue of dampness in historic buildings. It will be aimed at engineers, architects, surveyors and others working with historic buildings and will consist of a full day of lectures and discussion. The seminar will include advice on how to diagnose and remediate damp issues in traditional buildings, in keeping with best conservation practice, along with common pitfalls and problematic products that are often encountered. It will focus on technical assessments and the practicalities of conservation approaches to solving dampness and water ingress problems. A number of case studies will provide detailed examples of successes and lessons learned on recent conservation projects in Ireland.
