The role of structural experts in the conservation of heritage is unquestionable to ensure integrity of historic buildings. As the sustainability of heritage becomes a key goal within the heritage sector, the potential of the structural engineering discipline to engage with heritage is broader. Sustainability of heritage is understood as a holistic objective that integrates environmental, social, economic and cultural aspects. It is a multidisciplinary challenge where engineers can have significant input in diverse ways, ranging from structural advice to disaster response, from values assessment to preventive conservation strategies. This webinar will provide an overview of the links between Structural Engineering and Sustainable Heritage, explored through two case studies: management of Ancient Roman archaeological sites and post-disaster recovery of historic urban areas in Nepal. The concept of Sustainable Heritage will be examined, seeking to generate new ideas for engineering engagement with future heritage management.
