A classroom with a difference

As a leading building surveyor, we’re always keen to expand our range of skills and our understanding of all things stone. As a result, we returned to West Dean College and Gardens this week for the sixth course leading to the Professional Diploma in Building Conservation.

The diploma is recognised by Historic England (formerly English Heritage) and must be completed within five years. It enables participants to study the technical and practical skills relevant to repairing and maintaining historic structures. There is also the opportunity for participants to improve their skills and update their knowledge of developments in materials, techniques and current practice. It’s ideal for conservators, conservation officers, architects, surveyors, craftspeople and specialist contractors.

As the photos show, during the latest instalment of this hands-on diploma, we learnt how to cut stone and work with different lime-based mortars etc. We were working in a ruinette which is a facsimile of an ancient ruin.

If you’re looking for a thorough building surveyor in Cambridge who is also committed to ongoing personal and professional development, please call Raphael Stipic from Anglian Home Surveyors on 01223 661439.
