WEBINAR CONTENT

This half-day webinar will explore the composition and repair of historic facades with Jimmy O’Friel, Director of Oldstone Conservation – one of Ireland’s most experienced building conservation contractors.

Over three 45-minute lectures, with regular opportunities for Q&A, Jimmy O’Friel will explore the major strands of historic masonry - stone, brick and render – from the perspective of the building contractor and specifier. Themes will include material identification, properties of stone, brick and render, traditional assembly techniques, common defects, repair methodologies, proprietary and bespoke repair products and case studies.

Strands will include:

Stone identification, delamination and erosion, raking out, pointing and jointing, splice and plastic repairs, cleaning.

Brick properties, decay and weathering, pointing and mortar identification, replacement and plastic repair, colouring and tinting.

Render properties, lime specification and aggregates, common defects, repair versus replacement, dowel repairs, colouring.

Case studies will include major works at Leinster House and Kilmainham Courthouse, Dublin, and a variety of 18th and 19th-century brick and stone buildings.

The morning includes two ten-minute breaks and three opportunities for Q&A.
