2014 Sustainable Heritage Conservation workshops POSTPONED

UPDATE 29 April 2014:

Unfortunately, the programme of sustainable heritage conservation workshops described below have been postponed until a future set of dates to be confirmed.  This situation has arisen from a range of factors outside of our control.  We will be in contact with anybody who has already registered, and will advise as soon as these workshops have been rescheduled.

Sydney will be the venue for a series of 1 day sustainable heritage conservation workshops on a variety of topics.  These have been organised by the APT Australasia Chapter in conjunction with the City of Sydney, and will be presented by a number of APT Australasia Chapter members, and other heritage professionals.

Are you thinking of restoring or renovating a heritage-listed building or a building in a heritage conservation area? Do you live in an old house and you’re not sure of what changes you can make?  These detailed workshops are aimed to help owners achieve a high standard of sustainable conservation.
