Since the original series of Practical Building Conservation appeared in 1988, it has become a standard reference for those caring for historic buildings large and small: essential reading for architects, surveyors and building managers, as well as conservators.
Ashgate Publishing and English Heritage are now publishing an update to this seminal series. The new series has not only been updated to cover the latest techniques and materials, but has been greatly expanded and copiously illustrated.
English Heritage is renowned for its expertise in the conservation of buildings, gardens and archaeological sites, and these books are an accessible distillation of many years of experience. They look in detail at building materials ranging from the ancient to the modern, and are studded throughout with practical advice.
these will be unmissable! Charles Strang, Institute of Historic Building Conservation
