CPD Programme

Are you a professional working  in the heritage sector?

Do you find that not every brickwork contractor has the expertise and experience that they claim to have?

Are you looking to further your knowledge about traditional brickwork?

Would you like to discuss your own professional concerns, and get advice from a specialist in heritage brickwork?

Georgian Brickwork can help you improve your knowledge and help you to feel confident in appointing and working alongside specialist contractors.

Based in Ramsgate East Kent, Georgian Brickwork offers one day workshop seminars for professionals working within the heritage and construction industry, for example architects and conservation officers. The sessions are led by Charles Reilly and include information about materials, tools and processes, as well as practical demonstrations.

Drawing on his 30 years of experience, Charles will provide you with a deeper knowledge and better  understanding of the traditional methods and materials used to repair and restore heritage brickwork.

Each session has no more than 5 attendees so that there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions, and seek advice on your own professional concerns relating to the conservation of heritage brick buildings.

The sessions are held in a stunning Grade II listed Georgian property in the heart of the town and include a delicious lunch.

Current topics include Lime mortar pointing techniques, Gauged Brickwork,  Tuck Pointing,  and Tinting & Lime Repairs.  See below for more information and course dates.
