Last chance to book your place at Property Care Association conference

Time is running out to book a place on the Property Care Association trade body conference, developed to provide attendees with the inside track on how to tackle excess moisture in property and protect buildings for the long-term.

The Property Care Association has brought together industry experts, academics and practitioners from across the world to share best practice at the 2018 International Residential Ventilation and Preservation of Buildings Conference.

Taking place on June 14-15 at The Slate, University of Warwick in Coventry, the conference offers the perfect opportunity to investigate two major topics in property: ventilation and preservation.

As a trade body event, it offers an attractive pricing structure for a limited number of non-member delegates, with costs set at just £150 per day plus VAT, or £300 for both days, plus VAT.

The agenda for the first day includes an insight into residential ventilation, which the PCA says is critically important to tackling issues with a new generation of humid homes.

The second day looks at preservation in buildings, including defects in cavity wall insulation, the specification of pre-treated timber and an overview of the threats from emerging insects to timber in UK construction.

Speakers and panellists from RICS, the University College London Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering (UCL IEDE), UK Centre for Moisture in Buildings, and Bangor University are taking part, while Dr Fernanado Sarce-Thomann of Chile will give an international perspective on acceptable limits of moisture in homes.

More details on the conference content and the speakers can be found here.

Steve Hodgson, chief executive of the PCA, said: “Property professionals are at the frontline in dealing with a subject area of increasing importance nationally, namely excessive atmospheric moisture in buildings.

A number of factors are contributing to the rising trend, predominantly linked with modern living - including increased levels of occupation and rising fuel costs, as well as a drive to make homes more energy efficient. Efforts to reduce air leakage through draught proofing and retrofit insulation, as well as the changing climate patterns - featuring warmer, wetter weather – are also of significance.

“We are looking forward to sharing the latest research, perspectives and best practice on these subjects and more over the two days.”

The PCA has also produced a video on moisture in buildings, which can be viewed here.
