It is intended to help conservation professionals understand some of the structural engineering problems and solutions which historic buildings might have. The sessions will attempt to put conservation professionals in a position to hold informed discussions with project structural engineers, some of whom may not be particularly familiar with the constraints which conservation might put on their structural solutions.
