Description - Building Conservation Contracts and Grant Aid by Ken Davey
Conservation of our historic buildings, ancient towns and old villages is now receiving more attention than ever before. The owners of properties affected need informed advice on how best to proceed in letting a contract or in the deployment of directly employed labour. This book describes all the principal methods of arranging and letting building contracts for conservation work. It also covers contractor selection, the use of directly employed labour, and contractual considerations. The book will be of interest to architects and surveyors of all disciplines but principally conservation architects, building surveyors, quantity surveyors, general practice surveyors, planners, structural and civil engineers and conservation officers and all those involved in any type of building conservation work requiring the employment of building contractors or directly employed labour. It will be particularly helpful to practitioners who may be asked, perhaps for the first time, to become involved with a building conservation scheme.
Others who have already worked in conservation may find that they are faced with a different type or unfamiliar conservation problem and will find the book a useful reference source.
