"Building Performance"
Care and conservation of historic church buildings and their
Mercers' Hall
2 October 2014

Building Performance (environmental assessments to support the use
and development of cathedrals and church buildings) will look at the
conservation challenges and technical demands that arise with the
multiple uses of historic church buildings, including worship,
education and community support, tourism and the display of
museum-quality collections.  Building performance assessment is a
critical tool for the successful management of historic buildings
and brings together information about the fabric, the microclimate,
services (especially heating), and current and future uses.  By
understanding how a building is performing, day-to-day management
can be more effective, care and conservation can be more
sustainable, and the risks and running costs of alterations

The conference will be on 2 October 2014 at the Mercers' Hall in
London.  It will bring together a range of experts, to explore the
assessment of building performance and the control of internal
microclimates.  You can find more information on
