Joanna gained a First Class Honours degree in Building Surveying from the University of the West of England whilst working for her family stone masonry business and it was during this time that she developed an interest in historic buildings.  As this passion developed she went on to achieve a Merit in MSc Conservation of Historic Buildings from Bath University and began to pursue a career in Heritage. 

 After gaining a position as a Site Surveying Assistant for English Heritage in which she worked on the development and population of asset management systems, Joanna swiftly developed her career carrying out roles in Asset & Facilities Management and Conservation Maintenance Project Management.

In 2016 Joanna was offered the opportunity to undertake a collaborative doctoral partnership with Historic England and the University of Reading, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Her research area draws upon her experience of Heritage Asset Management and will investigate new ways of digital data management for the historic built environment, in particular, Heritage BIM.

In 2017 Joanna took the step to set up her own heritage management and surveying consultancy, to sit alongside her PhD research, after winning her first contract with the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust. She is now working alongside other large heritage organisations providing BIM advice, in particular the development of information requirements for BIM enabled heritage asset management. She will be publishing new industry guidance in Spring 2019. Her consultancy work also includes historic building recording, LBC design & access statements and conservation management plans.

So as you know, I came back from Antarctica earlier this year and when I did it felt as though a little piece of me was left in the Polar environment. So after a couple of months of feeling quite down I picked myself up and started planning. I start a new job tomorrow which is a little bit different and I can’t wait to st...

With business increasing and having been asked to do a number of presentations I thought it was about time to make things a bit more professional - with a new business logo. I'm a fan of using online tools that allow you to get creative, such as designing my own website so, I thought I'd do the same with my logo. Simple b...

Well it has been several months since my last post, at which point I was heading South to Stonington Island, Antarctica. However, after a wonderful field season at Base E carrying out survey work and emergency repairs, I have finally made it home to a comfy bed and warm shower. The season was a great success and we were a...

It's been non stop since I left the UK on 21st Dec to start my journey South but excited to finally arrive at Rothera Research Station today and get off the ship for the first time in a week. A brief stop in Santiago and just over a week in the Falklands gave me a much warmer start to the project than I was expecting but...

Hopefully more news to come on this upon my return from Antarctica but, very pleased to be able to add the National Trust to my client list after carrying out some BIM consultancy work for them recently. It was an honour to be asked and I very much look forward to working with the organisation again in the near future. Bi...

Well that was an intense few days. I've just returned from Glenmore Lodge in the Cairngorms where I attended an advanced medicine course provided by Wilderness Medical Training (WMT). I can't recommend the course more highly, it was fantastic. 

After some initial trepidation when I found out I'd be sharing a room with a co...

I can't believe how quickly the last couple of months have gone, or that it's only 6 weeks until I leave for Antarctica. Things are really busy with the final preparations. Meetings in Cambridge and London over the next week and then up to Glenmore Lodge for advanced first aid training next week. 

The weather is getting co...

I'm pleased to say that the Conservation Team for our season in Antarctica is now complete and we are busy preparing for our project on Stonington Island. Whilst we will be carrying out vital survey work and emergency repairs to the British, Base E we are also pleased to be undertaking survey work for the American East Ba...

Yesterday I visited the Bristish Antarctic Territory team at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Westminster along with the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust and the British Antarctic Survey. What a fabulous building! It was great getting to share our plans for the new Heritage Management Programme with the Historic Bases Wo...
