Damp in Old & Historic Buildings

Managing damp problems in old buildings

CPD Session in Nottingham

There will be an opportunity to attend a talk I’ll be giving in dealing with damp in old and historic buildings on the 19th of May in Sandiacre, Nottingham. Full details can be found on the following link

The event is being organised by Jane Newton at the CIOB, whose contact details can also be found in the link above. The event is £5 to non-members of the CIOB and free to members and students. Whether you are a practising surveyor or just have an interest in old buildings then I’m sure you’ll find it fascinating.
