Overview

This book examines management of the built cultural heritage through the use of the concept of cultural significance. It considers how and why cultural significance is assessed and how it can be used as an effective focus and driver for management strategies and processes.

Effective management of the built cultural heritage requires a clear understanding of what makes a place significant (and how that significance might be vulnerable) but the book also emphasises that this understanding of cultural significance must inform all activities in order to ensure that what is important about the place is protected and enhanced.

The book was written in the midst of much fundamental rethinking, both nationally and internationally, on approaches to the conservation of our built cultural heritage. Managing Built Heritage: the role of cultural significance is analytical and reflective but also draws on real life examples to illustrate particular issues, looking at current approaches and drawing out best practice.

The authors consider key policies and procedures that need to be implemented to help ensure effective management and the book will be useful for specialists in built cultural heritage - conservation officers, built heritage managers, architects, planners and surveyors - as well as for facilities and estates managers whose building stock includes listed buildings or buildings in conservation areas.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is clear and logical in its organisation, well illustrated both with photographs and case study examples … .A handy desk reference for the busy professional." (Journal of Architectural Conservation, November 2008)

"It is a highly informative text and, therefore, must be invaluable to those who are part of this very specialised area of the construction industry/academia." (Building Engineer)

'Set out in a clear print, with good use of colour, visual illustrations and abundant real-life examples and cases (clearly set out in highlighted boxes), this volume would definitely make a great supplementary, or even core text, for students of built heritage conservation . While the specialists would appreciate the new evaluation approach presented by the authors, I believe the book would be a useful read for all built environment professionals. The evaluation approach is applicable to all contemporary structures and this book is certainly worth consideration for facilities management professionals.' (Facilities)
