The Irish Georgian Society and Dublin City Council have assembled a team of conservation experts to present a series of live virtual talks each Tuesday lunchtime during March, April, and May 2022. The talks will provide an overview of the history and significance of Dublin’s period houses and practical advice on their conservation.
The individual talks will examine the history, significance, and conservation of windows; ironwork; roofs; bricks; lime; decorative plasterwork; as well as themed conservation lectures addressing conservation policy and legislation; engineering solutions; sensitively extending historic buildings; implementing appropriate energy efficiency measures; and disaster management and insurance.
The talks will be of particular interest to owners and occupiers of protected structures and houses located within Architectural Conservation Areas. Attendance will also be of benefit to built heritage professionals and practitioners, with talks recognised as formal CPD by the Irish Planning Institute, the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland, Engineers Ireland, and CIF Heritage Contractors.
It is possible to book talks individually (€15 each) or book in advance for the whole course for a discounted rate (€140). There will be an opportunity to ask questions through the Zoom Q&A chat function. In addition, a recording of the talks will be made available to subscribers for one week from issue.
The Irish Georgian Society is a charity established to conserve, protect, and foster a keen interest and a respect for Ireland’s architectural heritage and decorative arts. These aims are achieved through its scholarly and conservation education programmes, through its support of conservation projects and planning issues, and vitally, through its members and their activities.
