Building & Facilities News writes:

… The Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) is the UK’s professional body for building conservation practitioners and historic environment experts and was incorporated as a charity and limited company in 1997. The Institute is focused on establishing, nurturing and maintaining the highest standards of sustainable conservation practice, bolstering the effective protection and enhancement of historic environment and advancing heritage-led regeneration and equal access to the historic environment for all.

We spoke to Director, Se?an O’Reilly, for more insight…

…. ‘We are first and foremost a UK professional body and registered charity, with growing global links and we offer our members a full range of specialist services.   These include: generating and hosting networking and links across heritage, construction and voluntary sectors, with news, jobs, educational and training events, publications and data, relevant practice information and regulation, a jobs service and guidance to clients and policy makers, all run mostly free as a public service…’

‘We are also exploring the possibility of a petition for a Royal Charter (#IHBCPetitionforCharter), which is dependent on securing high levels of support across our members & stakeholders & with the prior agreement of the Privy Council Office.’

Our Annual Schools  (conferences) target specialist content and practitioners, and this year our School in Reading is focussed on ‘Place and Building Care’ and includes specific content on buildings, facilities and estate care and management. Case studies will range from St Paul’s Cathedral in London to refurbishing and managing historic public buildings.’…

‘Delegates will explore heritage conservation and planning challenges in managing buildings, property and places. With a focus on working with finance, policy and people in conservation, IHBC members and non-members will learn new insights, especially regarding sustainable management and conservation issues from leading experts in the field. ‘

…. ‘The Day School and Full School are both IHBC CPD-certified and are action-packed, full of case studies, practical guidance and expert advice.  In addition to the insightful networking and learning opportunities, our IHBC Heritage MarketPlace:LIVE is available to all… online..’
