ASTM WK25709

    New Terminology for for Notating Observed Facade Conditions in the Field

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.55 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The proposed scope of this standard is to develop a table of uniform symbols to record/document conditions observed during a facade inspection.

    Currently, professionals (architects and engineers) performing facade inspections are using self-described notation systems to record observations. Most systems have a legend to describe the symbol. We propose to develop a list of uniform symbols whose meanings are understood via the standard.


    facade inspection; symbols; deterioration; crack; step-crack; masonry-bulge; delamination

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
