Measurement and Recording of Historic Buildings / Edition 1

This volume provides a practical guide to measured building surveys with a special emphasis on recording the fabric of historic buildings. It should be of particular interest to architects, builders, conservation officers, industrial archaeologists, planners, surveyors and others working in the field of conservation who need accurate surveys of buildings and small sites.

The text assumes little previous knowledge of surveying and firstly describes basic measuring techniques and equipment before introducing elementary surveying and levelling. From these principles, the practices and techniques used to measure and record existing buildings are developed in a detailed step-by-step approach covering sketching, measuring, plotting and drawing presentation. Further chapters deal with more advanced techniques including the use of photography, electronic distance measurement and computer-aided architectural draughting.
