Joint Position Statement will be launched in 6 days!

It is now less than a week to go until we launch the 'Joint Position Statement' for investigating moisture in traditional buildings. This important collaboration with Historic England and RICS is your opportunity to hear direct from each of the principal authors on this unique initiative, AND get your hands on a copy of the document!

There is still a few spaces left, so grab the chance whilst you can. To find out more about who is on the speaker programme and what you might miss out on, simply click on the button below.

Office Closure

On Monday 19th September, the PCA offices will be closed. Like many of our members, we were saddened to hear of Queen Elizabeth II's passing and as a mark of respect, we will be closing the office for the day. We will respond to any messages/queries on Tuesday.


Off-site training success

It seems that Housing Associations and Local Authorities are finally starting to find real value in your Associations' training and taking responsibility for good moisture diagnostics. Our offsite training provision has never seen such demand and as many of our PCA members and other property specialists will agree...well-informed clients make better clients.

There are limited places left for in-house training this year and we expect demand to be just as high, if not higher, next year! So to ensure you don't miss out, why not book ahead for 2023? Get in touch with the training team today on 01480 400000.

Next LIVE Webinar

With just 2 weeks to go until our next LIVE webinar, join us as we discuss the joint statement 'Investigation of moisture and its effects on traditional buildings’ with Historic England and RICS. How big of a shift in standards is it? How does this jointly agreed document affect and shape what surveyors, property professionals and PCA members do when investigating dampness in traditional buildings?

To find out the answers and to learn much more, join us on Thursday 29th September 2022 from 9-10am as we go into detail regarding the new publication and the key points to takeaway. To register, simply click on the button below...
