The Irish Georgian Society and Dublin City Council have assembled a team of conservation experts to present a series of talks on the history and significance of Dublin’s period houses and practical advice on their conservation.
The talks addressed topics such as what it means for a building to be a designated a protected structure in terms of built heritage policy and legislation; how to make a building more energy efficient without compromising its historic building fabric; grants available for period buildings; how to sensitively extend a period building; tackling damp; understanding insurance; disaster prevention and preparedness; and standalone talks on the history and significance, and care and conservation of windows; doors and staircases, bricks; lime and pointing; ironwork; and decorative plasterwork.
Attendance at the talks will benefit building professionals and practitioners and are approved for CPD by the Construction Industry Federation, Engineers Ireland, the Irish Planning Institute, the Register of Heritage Contractors and the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland. The talks will also be of interest to owners of houses listed as Protected Structures or located within Architectural Conservation Areas.
Subscribers will be able to attend talks in person at the IGS's City Assembly House, 58 South William Street, D.2 or online live through Zoom (or a combination of both: you can decide each week if you wish to attend in-person or on-line).
It is possible to book talks individually (€15 each) or book for the whole course for a discounted rate (€140).
