  • Building Conservation Summer School – June 2025

    We are not running the Building Conservation Summer School in 2024.

    Previously organised by RICS, this is now a joint Not-For-Profit venture by three of the most experienced Chartered Building Surveyors in the country - Marianne Suhr, Stephen Boniface and Duncan Philips. The course is aimed at early career professionals who would like to get a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of building conservation from a large number of leading experts in one place at one time.

    We make the details available in the Autumn of 2024.
