The RIAI and the Heritage Contractors Register is delighted to present a monthly RIAI Conservation / Meet the Craftsman CPD Series. Shane Nolan, Director of Nolans Group Conservation & Restoration, will give a live talk over Zoom on approaches to the repair and reproduction of terracotta, faience, and brick specials.
Shane will guide attendees through the composition of terracotta, faience, and fired-clay materials, the manufacturing process, and the logistics of commissioning repairs and reproduction items. Through the use of numerous site case studies, including the manufacturing of brick specials, the webinar will also showcase how complex facades and rooflines, often featuring a combination of materials, can be sensitively repaired – sometimes with new design solutions to resolve inherent flaws in the original design. The webinar will provide a unique insight into this commonly overlooked area.
This webinar will be recorded for future delivery via RIAI DigitalChalk.
