The Building Crafts & Conservation Foundation

Raising the profile of the conservation industry

We plan to use every opportunity to raise awareness of the remarkable work being done to retain the built heritage by engaging with a wide range of partners and property owners who are working in the heritage field and whose work needs to be recognised.

Repairing and restoring the heritage built estate

The result of our degree and other courses will be the restoration of heritage buildings of all types in partnership with their owners, and other partners through the involvement of those taking part in our programmes.

Why do we need heritage skills?

“There is a need for people with both a necessary high level of craft skill and an academic and theoretical perspective. For too long (at least within our educational system) we have isolated the two from one another to the detriment of the sector. Those who specify and those who repair will develop a greater understanding of one another’s strengths through our programmes.”
