Building Restoration involves returning a building to its former state
Building Restoration is done to historical buildings to maintain their heritage and rich culture. The features of a building are recreated to match its appearance and function.
Restoration aims at achieving the highest level of authenticity and replication. If there’s a need to install new systems utilities such as ACs, furnaces, and fire alarms, they’ll be done in a concealed manner so that they don’t disrupt the building’s original appearance.
Criteria for assessing the need for building restoration include:
- Effects of restoration on the heritage of the building
- Effects of the project on the previous form of the building
- Implications of the restoration on the maintenance requirements
- The amount of evidence needed to determine the original form of the building
Restoration may require more paperwork and care in historical cities.
