About

Buildings are a direct link to the past – to the people who built them, to the people that lived in them and to economies and societies that produced them. The Conservation and Management of Historic Buildings programme is offered by Royal Agricultural University.

Overview

Even the simplest structure encapsulates a huge body of evidence about the past. To protect and steward a building’s heritage requires an understanding of its nature, structure, historic context and significance, the ways in which the building can be legally protected and the conservation tools which are available for its repair and upkeep.  

It also requires an understanding of how a given structure can be managed for a sustainable future. 

This includes everything from schemes of interpretation and display, to how visitors can be managed to control potential damage through to how historic buildings can be retrofitted to make them environmentally friendly.

The Conservation and Management of Historic Buildings programme is offered by Royal Agricultural University.
