Henry Russell - Director of MSc Conservation of the Historic Environment - at Summer School

Henry Russell, Director of the MSc Conservation of the Historic Environment in the School of Real Estate & Planning, was teaching on a conservation summer school last week. The summer school, which is run every September by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB), is aimed at undergraduate students who are on building surveying and real estate programmes.

Organised by Marianne Suhr MRICS of SPAB who is also a presenter on the BBC 'Restoration' series, the summer school shows budding surveyors what conservation is and the skills needed to work in the sector.

Henry Russell ran a day on condition surveys and specification at Woodchester Mansion, Gloucestershire, where students have the chance to put the principles they have learnt into practice.

The students have another practical day learning about lime with Marianne, as well as lectures from leading specialists on conservation philisophy, law, timber decay, energy efficiency, structural analysis, and a wide range of traditional materials.
