Vancouver Heritage Foundation – Old School Courses: Shingles, Shiplap & Stucco- The Exterior of Your House Explained

Course to be rescheduled – date TBA.

Discover why it is important to understand the evolution of a building, including its current condition and potential, prior to embarking on its preservation, rehabilitation or restoration. Delivered by Heritage Consultant Jeanette Hlavach MCIP and James Burton MAIBC, Birmingham & Wood Architects, this session will include two case studies. The Mission to Seafarer’s Building will be used as a “lab” both for visual observation purposes and investigation of the building’s exterior components. In addition, a section of Strathcona along Heatley Street will provide examples of different materials and various conservation treatments of building exteriors. This one-day course takes place Saturday, June 11, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Mission to Seafarers (Flying Angels Club), 401 East Waterfront Road, Vancouver. The cost is $125 + HST. Register at
