Guide to Recording Historic Building
Butterworth Architecture, 1990 - Technology & Engineering - 80 pages
This guide is designed to serve those architects and surveyors who are increasingly obliged to carry out full and detailed measurement of historic and listed buildings. This process of recording involves collaboration between a variety of professionals and will also be of interest to architectural historians, archaeologists, builders and planners. Commissioned by ICOMOS, it charts the steps necessary to ensure the maintenance of adequate records of the original nature and subsequent evolution of historic buildings. It lists all the aspects of technical documentation and scientific measurement of historic buildings, including photogrammetry, electronic distance measurement (EDM) and technical dating methods. The results of this documentation are essential to the proper preparation of schemes of maintenance, repair and adaptation by building owners, planners and members of the building professions.
