External Training Provision. Moisture is a key factor in almost all forms of decay, and it increases heat loss from building fabric. However, identifying its source can be complicated as water is so mobile. It can condense from humid air onto cold surfaces and it can spread through a structure by capillary action and gravity.

Understanding these mechanisms and their consequences is vital, particularly now that we are increasing insulation in historic buildings and restricting ventilation. Getting it wrong can be disastrous.

In this virtual conference, to be held on three consecutive Thursdays, speakers include leading conservation specialists Marianne Suhr and Tim Floyd; Robyn Pender, Alison Henry and others from Historic England; Roger Curtis from Historic Environment Scotland, and Bath Abbey project architect Alex Morris.
