The workshop 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.
