Team Force restoration is proud to announce, that Brendan has been awarded the John Ashurst, English Heritage Prize for Professional Development Diploma in Building Conservation.
The prize is awarded in recognition of achieving an outstanding level of work. It was set up in 2008 in memory of John Ashurst, the former Chief Architect at Historic England, who brought the Building Conservation Masterclass programme to West Dean College from its original base at Fort Brockhurst. John Ashurst, who, through his books and lectures, was one of the most influential authorities on stone conservation in the UK.
The award is rarely given out unless the students shows outstanding academic understanding. Brendan has been awarded the honour on the competition of The Building Conservation Masterclass programme (BCMs) which provides training in technical and practical skills in the repair and maintenance of historic structures. All the courses are recognised by Historic England and adhere to its guidelines and standards aimed at improving practice.They have been designed and are delivered by leading practitioners in the field of building conservation.
The courses follow the latest knowledge and developments in technology, craft and science applicable to historic buildings, archaeological sites and monuments and, in particular, the approach set out in the Practical Building Conservation series.
Well done Brendan for outstanding academic achievement!
