    This new ASTM publication, combined with ASTM Standard Practice for Periodic Inspection of Building Facades for Unsafe Conditions (E 2270), provide a rational guide for building owners and governing authorities to help ensure the safety of our aging building infrastructure. Written by experts who bring their first hand knowledge and experience to this work, these 24 peer-reviewed papers cover a wide diversity of architecture within North America.

    Papers are grouped into the following headings:
    • Purpose and Background to Facade Ordinances
    • Addressing Historic Buildings
    • Investigation and Data Collection Techniques
    • Material and Repair Techniques

    STP 1444 is a valuable resource for architects, engineers, contractors, and public and private facility owners.
