Condition Surveys for Historic Structures

A condition survey plays an essential role in conservation planning and decision-making for historic places. But have you ever read a condition survey of an historic place and got to the end still wondering about cost, urgency, and the scope of work involved? This hands-on workshop introduces how a condition survey fits into the overall heritage conservation process. 

Build your capacity to undertake or manage surveys that are accessibleand convincing, and that will serve as excellent planning, management and fund-raising tools for historic places.

Instructor James Burton MAIBC, is a partner in Birmingham & Wood Architects and Planners, a presenter with Heritage Vancouver’s Old School Program, and a recipient of a City of Vancouver Heritage Award of Recognition for his work with the adaptive rehabilitation of historic buildings.

This separate pre-conference workshop is offered by the University of Victoria’s Cultural Resource Management Program. Click here to find out more.
