International conference looks to the future in building preservation

A
national trade body conference, which provides insight into the latest thinking
and technology in the preservation and protection of buildings across the UK,
has unveiled its agenda for this year’s event.

The
2019 Property Care Association International Building Preservation Conference
takes place at The Slate, University of Warwick, on Thursday, November 21.

Speakers
will include Lady Renee-Marie Young, of the National Landlords Association, as
well as representatives from Nationwide and Historic England.

James
Berry, PCA’s Technical Manager said: “Over the years, the conference has built
up a reputation as a key event for anyone looking at how to tackle moisture
issues in buildings.

“With
challenges including a greater airtightness in buildings to meet environmental
performance requirements, fuel poverty and a changing climate, the issue is
becoming more and more significant in both the public and private sector.

“The
format for the conference is a series of expert speakers and Q and A sessions.

“The
day is designed to create engagement between speakers and delegates, all with
the common goal of finding new and innovative ways to adapt to the challenges
we face.

“Damp,
uncomfortable homes take their toll on the health and wellbeing of the people
who live in them and can really impact on a person’s quality of life.

“Such
conditions can also lead to costly defects in a building’s structure and
fabric.

“The
PCA International Building Preservation Conference sets out how new
technologies and advances, coupled with time-proven expertise and knowledge,
can be drawn upon to address the issue.”

For
the first-time in the Association’s conference history, the preservation event
will run concurrently with the PCA’s Invasive Weed Control Conference, at The
Slate.
