Building survey and findings

The construction survey of a historic building serves various purposes. It can be part of the recording and research (inventory), the basis for conservation measures (restoration) and the starting point for planning changes (adaptation).

In the field of monument preservation, the building survey defines the current condition of an object. A building survey forms an essential basis for the development of property-specific conservation measures and is usually essential for change measures. It is the basis for project presentation and a tool for tendering, construction management and subsequent building maintenance.

With this in mind, the building was measured using a 3D laser scan and all facilities and equipment were inventoried. Experts examined all constructions, components, surfaces, and equipment in order to develop individual conservation and restoration concepts.
