Short Course
This course is suitable for; those responsible for the care and maintenance of historic timber-frames, home- owners and conservation contractors.
Weald and Downland Museum, Chichester, PO18 0EU, West Sussex, United Kingdom

Effective and successful building conservation is underpinned by a good understanding of the structure, its
development and its current condition. This allows informed decisions to be made about its conservation and
aims to ensure that any interventions are well thought through and maintain and enhance the significance of
the heritage asset. The first session will cover some of the major features relating specifically to interpreting
historic timber-frame buildings and the second session will then discuss a range or conservation interventions.
The format will be two guided site tours using the Museum Collection of buildings as case studies.

On this short course you'll:

  • Identify the structural and spatial arrangements encountered in timber-frame buildings
  • Establish the ways timber-frame buildings have developed over time.
  • Identify the main causes of failure in timber-frame structures
  • Discuss the range of structural interventions.
