Lime Mortar Update OPW and BLFI

Mortar mixes for our Built Heritage, including Hot-mixed Lime mortar and earth mortars

Workshop hosted by OPW Depot Kilkenny

This Event is Now Fully Booked

Note Similar workshops will be run in Autumn 2017 in Killarney and Atheny

The workshops will be of interest to those specifying or working with mortars for the repair of buildings. It will benefit the architect/ mason making the transition into working on heritage structures

and serve as an update for those already working in conservation but who may not have used Hot-mixes and earth mortars. It will also be a forum for those wishing to share their understanding of pozzolans and other aids to carbonation and how to test in the field.


Participants should go away knowing:

how to interpret an existing mortar

how to specify a good repair mortar

the importance of understanding the materials

how pozzolans enhance hydraulic set

how to carry out field tests on their projects 
Activities will be lead by practitioners and specifiers Pat McAfee stonemason and Engineer Lisa Edden
