The conservation of heritage properties is a complex process,
involving both an understanding of conservation principles and
thoughtful management strategies. The course focuses on principles,
techniques, experiences, and resources in the management of heritage
conservation projects from the points of view of both the
owner/client and the professional/consultant. Project management
theory and practice are addressed, with a bias towards the pragmatic
and the practical, through the discussion of case studies. Projects
undertaken at the municipal level in both Canada and abroad are
emphasized, although other levels are also addressed. An initial
review of the heritage conservation planning strategies provides a
context in which you strengthen your ability to:

    *   Recognize the distinct phases of the project management

    *   Build a team with the appropriate range of professional

    *   Define, plan, schedule, and budget the project

    *   Break down the work into components and illustrate them

    *   Implement, control, and monitor projects

    *   Prepare reports

    *   Appreciate the roles of the various communities of interest

    *   Identify community perspectives and achieve meaningful
        public consultation

    *   Consider risk management

    *   Address ethical and legal issues

    *   Write RFPs and proposals
