Converting historic buildings


Hosted by Eloise Hanson, editor, IHM

[sponsored by Cvent and Duve]

Old and under-utilised heritage buildings present a great opportunity for boutique hotel conversion. Balancing the traditional with the modern is at once challenging and appealing, with adaptive reuse projects often requiring creative solutions around clever engineering, preservation standards, and operational efficiencies.

You will discover:

• How to secure planning consent to convert a historical building or disused structure into a hotel

• How to ensure a project meets modern health and safety standards as well as sustainability criteria

• Design and architectural challenges during development and how this might effect future maintenance of the property

• The legal and financial logistics of undertaking such projects

Trailblazers joining the discussion will be:

Sarah Barlow, associate, Purcell

David McDonald, chair, Institute of Historic Building Conservation

Justin Hauge, CEO, Storied Collection

Grace Leo, managing partner, Relais Retreats
