Art Conservation - What a Building Services Engineer needs to know

Science & Technology

A unique insight into the National Portrait Gallery - home of some of the most prestigious art in the World

This is a CIBSE Home Counties South West "Central London" event that will give Building Services Engineers, and other Built Environment professionals, a remarkable insight into the working environment both gallery and conservation of arguably the nation's most important and historic portaits.
