CPD: Fire in Historic Buildings: The Risks


SKU: N/A Category:


Every year, historic properties are lost to fire across the UK: in the last five years Belfast, Glasgow, and Liverpool have all suffered the loss of irreplaceable buildings. Conservation Architect Peter will provide an overview of the special risks which are found on historic buildings, how designers can assess these risks, and the development of a holistic approach which protects buildings and their occupants.

Peter Drummond has worked on a wide range of conservation projects across the UK and Ireland, focussing on heritage-led regeneration. A trustee of the RIAS, he chaired the Scottish Government’s Fire Safety Review Panel 2020-22 and was recently Crown expert at the Fatal Accident Inquiry for the Cameron House Fire.

All GCHT CPD sessions are recognised by the IHBC, and attendees can obtain a CPD certificate upon completion.
