The aim of the BWF Heritage and Conservation Group is for BWF members to come together and share experience, knowledge and best practice. Ultimately we want to develop a range of resources that would aid both members and their customers when undertaking upgrade or replacement of joinery in this sector.

We are delighted to announce that Tim Belden will be the guest speaker.

Tim will be presenting on the use of timber in historic buildings, likely causes of degradation and also the development of engineered wood-based products There will be a discussion on possible remedies that may be employed to deal with areas of degradation, consider how to best protect existing timbers that currently have not degraded and how we can better care for the future of buildings while meeting the current standards.
