One of the practice partners Stephen Boniface is running a day long drop in CPD session at The Three Tuns Pub, Fens Drayton, Cambridgeshire on Friday 5th July 2013.

The pub is a Grade II* listed building – timber framed (with brick gable) under thatch.  Years of water ingress has resulted in an widespread cases of Death watch Beetle infestation.  The render was truly ‘structural’ – as was discovered when it was removed! The pub is in the progress of being repaired, including a new green oak frame in the pub garden. While work progresses the pub remains operational.

Stephen will be on site from 10am through to about 4pm.  Running an ‘open day’ for any professional interested in viewing the work and learning from this project,  to explain the background and what is happening. With 5 key learning objectives:

  1. Identification of potential for concealed damage behind render.
  2. Identification of Death Watch Beetle.
  3. An approach to investigating a timber frame.
  4. How to support and then repair a frame.
  5. Seeing a green Oak frame under construction.
