Addressing dampness and mould issues

Dampness and mould continue to receive high levels of media attention and this year's conference will address these issues, featuring talks on Awaab’s Law and The Future Homes Strategy. Dampness in the built environment, competence and guidance are also part of the agenda, together with challenges of timber preservation, restoration and construction, what’s new to the industry and novel approaches too.

This year's event will aim to impact and shed light on many issues and is one that all surveying, local authority/social housing providers, construction specialists and property professionals will benefit from.
