Heritage HIIT 03: Conservation in action – Traditional materials and Trades 

Thursday 8 September 2022 (Chair, Jude Doyle)

In this third of our Heritage HIIT Sessions, we will examine the stuff of conservation – traditional materials and trades. We will explore a number of exemplar projects highlighting particular materials used and processes engaged to achieve the required conservation outcome. Our expert presenters, Jude Doyle, Jason Pruszinski and Peter Lovell, David Bridgman and Jean Rice will breakdown the essentials of research and analysis. How to identify a structure’s style and period, correct photographic and other documentation processes, when to revers unsympathetic elements, and ways to define the threshold for deferring to a heritage or other specialist expert are all explored through a set of fascinating and significant project examples.

Heritage HIIT 04: Showcasing Heritage – Design Case Studies 

Thursday 15 September 2022 (Chair, Alice Hampson)

We look at a series of in-progress and recently completed case studies from across Australia to demonstrate how real-world refurbishment and adaptive reuse projects for places of heritage significance have addressed issues of climate change, sustainability, equity of access, fire code compliance and seismic considerations. It will also explore key policy and design principles for approaching new development in heritage conservation areas. 

Speakers: Alice Hampson, Melissa Hughes, George Phillips, Mat Hinds, David Brown, Dimmity Walker
