The Lime Centre of West Wales
Lessons from the past build a sustainable future This project has established The Lime Centre of West Wales as a “centre of excellence” locally for conservation of the built heritage. Six training days were developed and delivered based on the principles of conservation and use of the correct environmentally friendly materials and techniques. The training covered both old and new buildings. The training courses included presentations and some ‘hands on’ opportunities. The result was an increase in knowledge and understanding of traditional building techniques and materials and improved local skill. Audiences were diverse including, builders, planners and architects. The project helped to secure the funding of three members of staff who will hopefully now go on to deliver training themselves. The Company has built a secure platform from which to take these courses further and promote the sustainability messages to a wider audience.
