Last chance to book for AJ Specification Live: Retrofit

  • Comment

Book your free place at AJ Specification Live on Wednesday 18 October in London, and hear what architects are specifying for retrofit projects

The speakers taking part in this month’s event are Eric Martin, partner at Delvendahl Martin Architects; Andrew de Silva, associate director at David Miller Architects; and Jamie Coath, senior partner at Purcell.

They will be presenting recent projects including Delvendahl Martin’s reworking of offices at 30 Cannon Street, where it grappled with the first ever GRC façade; the JP Morgan Media Centre at Lord’s Cricket Ground remade by David Miller Architects with an extra 15 per cent of floor space; and Purcell’s restoration of a once maligned Grade-II listed Modernist building, St Fagans National Museum of History.

The speakers will explain their design thinking and what informs their choice in the specification and retrofit of existing structures and buildings. The discussion will look at retrofit projects ranging from conservation issues to complete reworkings, and from revisiting traditional methods of construction to utlising new technology to improve on the original design.

The talks will be followed by a Q&A session and networking drinks. AJ Specification Live is a series of free talks providing in-depth information in the design and specification of building components and construction methods.
