What is a Conservation Architect?

A Conservation Architect is defined by the RIBA.

"Able to demonstrate depth of understanding of conservation practice, principles and philosophy, and to guide and take responsibility for others whilst understanding when further specialist guidance is required."

Phil Easton is a Registered Conservation Architect.  This accreditation underpins the knowledge required to work on regionally important historic buildings and listed structures and buildings in sensitive historic environments.

The RIBA Conservation Register is open to any ARB ­registered architect who undertakes to work to international standards of conservation, and who can demonstrate that they have the appropriate level of competence in the fourteen specialist skill areas detailed in the current ICOMOS Education and Training Guidelines. The Register is managed by the Conservation Registrar, advised by the RIBA Conservation Register Steering Group and reporting to the RIBA Professional Services Board.

The RIBA Conservation Register enables those looking to commission work on heritage buildings to find architects with the specific skills and experience they require, encompassing all aspects of historic building conservation, repair and maintenance.
