The Built Environment Professional Education Project (BEPE) aims to build on the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by helping to generate a shift change in how inclusive design skills are taught in the UK. The aim is that all built environment professionals will receive mandatory, quality teaching about inclusive design so that they can help create inclusive building, places and spaces for future generations. More information about the BEPE project is available here.
CIC is the representative forum for the professional bodies, research organisations and specialist business associations for professional services providers in the construction industry. It provides a single voice for professionals in all sectors of the built environment through its collective membership of 500,000 individual professionals and 25,000 firms of construction consultants.
The awards are for building conversions that strike that tricky balance between the practicality of their new function and the readability of their old. Projects that demonstrate a viable and sustainable long-term use for buildings at risk are particularly encouraged to apply. There are two award categories:
Assessment criteria include
- The re-use needs to be appropriate and viable
- New work should be distinguishable from the original without detracting from it
- Weight will given to the survival, re-use or retention of features, and interpretation should be provided if it helps the understanding of the building where the original function is not self-evident
- There should be some evidence of attention to energy efficiency in the conversion
- There should be a future maintenance programme.
The deadline for submissions in 31 May 2017.

Brown University’s Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World and Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology invite applications for a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Critical Cultural Heritage. This position is to be held jointly with the Cogut Center for the Humanities for a term of two years beginning in July 2017. We seek exceptional junior scholars who augment or complement the present strengths and diversity of our communities at Brown University, and who enhance our commitment to inclusive education and research.
We are particularly interested in archaeologists who approach cultural heritage as an interdisciplinary field devoted to the many dimensions of cultural heritage, in particular as material, intangible, emotional, and intellectual. We wish to encourage engagements with cultural and material heritage that challenge dominant nationalist and other ideological frameworks and incorporate the active participation of local communities and marginalized peoples in heritage discourses and representations. We can also envision teaching, advising and research that from a critical perspective on cultural heritage explore topics such as: authenticity, identity, ideology, ownership, commodification, culture and conflict, trauma and memorialization, indigenous rights, and hybridity and cosmopolitanism.
Applicants will have received a Ph.D. within the past five (5) years from an institution other than Brown in the fields of Anthropology, Archaeology, Museum Studies, or Cultural Studies. Fellows will and teach two courses each year (which will be cross-listed in the Cogut Center’s Humanities course offerings). The fellow will also be affiliated with the Cogut Center and is expected to participate in the weekly Tuesday seminars as well as other activities of the Center. Fellows will receive a stipend of $61,500, with an increase to $63,907 the second year, plus benefits and a research budget of $2,000 per year.
All candidates should submit a letter of application, short descriptions of 3-4 proposed courses, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references by March 15, 2017. Applications received by March 15, 2017 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the position is closed or filled.
Please submit application materials online at apply.interfolio.com/40133. There is no need to provide hard copies of application materials for those that have already been submitted electronically.
The project is led by Dr Oriel Prizeman at the Welsh School of Architecture, with co-investigators Professor of Computer Vision, Chris Jones at the School of Computer Science, Cardiff University and Professor Alistair Black from the School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Shelf-Life asks if the uniquely controlled procurement of over 2600 public buildings across Britain and America around 100 years ago by the Carnegie Library Programme could benefit from some systematic thinking for their re-vitalisation at a time of crisis. Using and developing new techniques of Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM), the proposal aims to develop a digital resource of common elements to enable better-informed, more sensitive and economic proposals for the rehabilitation and re-use of these buildings and to set an example for others.
Have a look at these are two 40 month contracts in complimentary roles in digital heritage based in architectural history and computer vision respectively, each offering the opportunity to carry out a PhD as a staff candidate

Doctoral Training Partnership: Assessing and predicting natural environmental impacts on cultural heritage landscapes: a case study on Hadrian’s Wall
The overall aim of the research project is to assess the vulnerability of tangible cultural heritage to natural hazards under a changing climate regime, demonstrating this on an iconic monument of international renown. To achieve the aim, the study will address the following objectives:
1. Review the state of the art in spatio-temporal landscape modelling and appraise the suitability of existing and alternative datasets of the Wall;
2. Construct fully integrated, coherent 3D time series for characteristic sites on the Wall that are at risk to natural environmental processes;
3. Extend the time series by predictive modelling of inherent natural environmental processes under different future climate change scenarios;
4. Interpret the impact of historic evolution and future projection on the tangible cultural heritage.

The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) Professional Fellowship is a three-year program designed to provide in-depth opportunities for practitioners to build and strengthen their skills and experience as conservation professionals, while working under the guidance of experienced GCI staff.
The 2017–2020 fellow in the Conserving Modern Architecture Initiative (CMAI) will work closely with architects, engineers, conservators and scientists as an integral part of this GCI initiative to advance the practice of conserving twentieth-century heritage, with a focus on modern architecture. CMAI is organized around five areas of work that respond to critical conservation challenges as identified by the GCI during the first phase of the work: engaging with and supporting the profession; model field projects; historical, methodological and scientific research; production and dissemination of key texts and resources; and education and training.
