The field of architectural conservation is a fairly new addition to the design and construction industry. As a complementary discipline to historic preservation, conservation practitioners provide expertise on historic materials and knowledge regarding best practices for preserving and restoring historic architectural elements. Conservators are hired as consultants to architects, as subcontractors to general contractors, and are becoming more prevalent on client teams. The diversity of their roles in the design and construction process can cause confusion and misunderstandings among the various stakeholders of a project. This presentation will clarify the roles of conservators and how to successfully integrate their expertise into the project delivery process.
