Wednesday 15th July 2020 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting
Lime mortar has been used with stone since Roman times for building in Scotland. Many of Scotland’s traditional buildings were constructed and finished using lime mortars, for bedding, pointing, harling and renders. Lime mortar remains the expert’s material of choice for repairs and maintenance to traditional stone buildings and this technical CPD will discuss the correct way to specify and apply it on conservation projects, along with debunking some myths and answering commonly asked questions on its use.
This CPD will be delivered by David Wiggins Ph.D., Principal Engineer with Curtins. David is a Conservation-Accredited Engineer (CARE) and is actively involved in research & development pertaining to the technical conservation of masonry in addition to delivering repair, rehabilitation and conservation projects in practice. He is a regular speaker on the subject at technical lectures and seminars.
All GCHT CPD sessions are recognised by the IHBC, and attendees can obtain a CPD certificate upon completion.
£15 per person / £10 for students.
