Tuesday 1 March, 2016
The Irish Georgian Society and Dublin City Council have assembled a team of conservation experts to present a series of talks on the history and significance of Dublin’s period houses and practical advice on their conservation. Attendance at the talks will greatly benefit owners of all periods and types of houses, from the modest Edwardian artisan dwelling to the substantial red-bricks of the Victorian suburbs and the fine townhouses of our Georgian city squares, providing an A to Z for their care and conservation.
These talks will also benefit building professionals and practitioners and are approved for CPD by the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, Engineers Ireland, the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland, the Irish Planning Institute and the Heritage Contractors.
Talks, which will commence on Tuesday 1st March 2016, and continue for 12 weeks, will take place from 1pm to 2pm, in the Helen Roe Theatre, RSAI, 63 Merrion Square, Dublin 2.
It is possible to attend all, one or as many of the talks as you wish. The talks are priced at €15 each, payable at the door, or booked in advance at a reduced rate of €125 for all twelve talks. Complementary to the Tuesday talks will be a Saturday morning walking tour, at an additional cost of €15.
The Conserving your Dublin Period House course is an action of the Dublin City Heritage Plan and fulfils City Council conservation policy to provide architectural advice to homeowners. It is also an action of the Irish Georgian Society’s Conservation Education Programme.
The Conservation Education Programme is supported by Irish Heritage Insurance
