Building conservation masterclasses

December 1, 2007

West Dean CollegeThe programme of Building Conservation Masterclasses (BCMs) at West Dean College in south east England provides technical and practical skills in the repair and maintenance of historic structures.  These intensive short courses have been designed and are delivered by leading practitioners in the field of building conservation.

Aimed at those who need to develop practical skills and those who need to understand, specify and supervise these skills, the BCMs are relevant for craftsmen, conservators, conservation officers, architects, surveyors, planners, construction managers, specifiers, specialist contractors and archaeologists. A new Professional Development Diploma can be achieved through the successful completion of 10 BCMs and the submission of a final essay.Restoration
