Register now for the STBA-SPAB Conference on 13 June 2017, which will be focusing on the sustainability of traditional buildings. This year the conference will explore a much broader agenda, based around three themes:
Context relates to the existing regulatory and policy framework for the built environment, but also to our understanding of sustainability – as most current definitions fail to include health or heritage and thus lead to false oppositions and unintended consequences.
Continuity highlights the importance of maintenance in achieving dry, healthy and functioning (i.e. sustainable) buildings, the recording and valuing of heritage on “low status” buildings, and reducing the risks of inappropriate interventions.
Change covers the work on responsible retrofit which STBA has championed since its inception. This year the focus will be on on windows and floors in addition to providing the latest evidence on solid wall insulation.
The venue is: The Gallery at Alan Baxter Ltd, 75 Cowcross Street, London, EC1M 6EL.
