This day course will be held at Hatfield House. The course is aimed at anyone wanting to further their understanding of historic building surveying, condition surveys and scheduling or specifying of repairs. The results of the day course will provide a detailed schedule of repairs, with commentary on specification, for a gardener's bothy. This will be used to inform future conservation and renovation works.
The day will commence with an introduction and briefing. Attendees will be provided with material, such as measured surveys to aid their work. You will then be taken to the site to undertake your own survey of the building and schedule repairs. The afternoon will be spent in the onsite lecture rooms, with the tutor, evaluating the morning’s work and considering what should be identified by the survey and what the appropriate repairs specifications should include.
