AbstractA construction company hired to do restoration work on a historical house addresses a number of issues when trying to find timber that is both suitable to be used in the historical building but also follows laws stipulating that timber for government contract projects must come from legal and sustainable sources. The scenario raises issues such as heritage; sustainability; environment and culpable ignorance. The teaching format is a two hour session with small group discussions.
