    32 peer-reviewed papers explore state-of-the-art methods used in the investigation, rehabilitation and maintenance of existing structures; review current guidelines, practices and test methods; and address future building preservation standards issues.

    Five key areas addressed:

    • Perspectives on Preservation

    • Methodologies of Preservation

    • Preservation and Building Systems

    • Preservation and Building Materials

    • Preservation and Its Effect on the Environment.

    An invaluable resource for architects, civil engineers, conservators, building contractors and owners, preservation societies and building rehabilitation/preservation professionals.
