Description - Understanding Historic Building Conservation by Michael Forsyth
Understanding Conservation describes the challenges of conservation at planning level in urban, rural and brownfield contexts, and the framework of legislation and charters within which these operate. It then discusses conservation philosophy and the importance of understanding the history of a building before making strategic decisions, and examines the vital role of each conservation team member. The book provides guidance on creating a conservation plan, and explains the basic issues of costings and contracts for conservation.
