Team member embarks on further learning in Building Conservation
— 09 Feb 2023
We are delighted that Rick has been accepted to study for a Masters in Building Conservation at the Weald & Downland Living Museum.
Architectural Technologist Rick Gilroy has been with Jonathan Rhind Architects for 8 years, during his time with us he has obtained his HNC in Construction and qualified as a Chartered Architectural Technologist (MCIAT).
The MSc course runs over two years with several taught modules as well as a dissertation to complete. Rick will spend short periods throughout the course on site at the Museum for lectures, seminars and workshops as well as going on site visits and taking part in practical hands on experiences.
The course is designed so that students can balance their studies with working in professional roles, and Rick’s experience in historic building conservation should stand him in good stead.
The Weald & Downland Museum, which recently gained prominence through its role in BBC One’s The Repair Shop, provides a hands on experience for visitors to explore over 1,000 years of history by exploring rural domestic life through their historic buildings and collections.
The Museum runs all sorts of courses from CPD to evening talks and skills courses in traditional crafts and trades, and Rick and his fellow students will be able to access not only the museum’s nationally designated historic buildings and over 15,000 artefacts in its collection, but also the comprehensive library and resources from the University of York who validate the course.
We are pleased to be able to support Rick in this current stage of his learning and career development and look forward to learning from him as he brings back knowledge and skills to the practice.
