RIAI CONSERVATION GRADE 3 COURSE

James McKevitt, Adrian King, and Dyanne Tuite recently attended the RIAI Conservation Induction Module 2019. The course itself consisted of a lecture series delivered by experts in the various fields of conservation. The lectures were supplemented with site visits to the Irish Architectural Archive, Ormond Quay, and lime plaster demonstrations.

An Architect accredited at Grade 3 is not assessed by a Board, but must attend this RIAI course covering basic general information on the principles and practice of conservation, and successfully complete an Assessment Exercise. To be accredited at Grade 3 an Architectural Practice must have at least one owner – a ‘Partner’ or ‘Principal’ – who holds accreditation at Grade 3.

An Architect accredited at Grade 3 is expected to have a good general understanding of the legislation, philosophy and technical requirements, but not to have the range of expertise to carry out all the tasks undertaken by Grades 1 and 2.

James, Adrian and Dyanne will join our existing Grade 3 Conservation acredited architects, Suzanne Ring and Turlough McKevitt, in the practice.
