AABC is an independent self-financing accreditation body established in 1999 for and by skilled conservation architects and is not subsidised by either commercial or professional organisational sponsorship. There are now well over 400 building conservation accredited architects on the AABC Register, the primary purpose of which is to protect the historic built environment from damaging interventions devised by people not skilled in historic building conservation and adaptation. It does so by providing on the internet, for the benefit of clients, a register of architects whose work and skills in building conservation have been established by peer assessment - moderated by a lay assessor representing the client. The web site is currently being refreshed and restructured to be even more accessible and user-friendly, and the designer will be presenting the proposals at the Conference.
