Synopsis
This work tells you what you need to know about renovating traditional buildings. It should be of interest to structural engineers, architects, surveyors, and builders who may be relatively inexperienced in renovation work. With strong social, architectural and legislative pressure to keep traditional buildings rather than replace them with new ones, not to mention the economic benefits, this book sets out to give timely advice. It examines the structural aspects to be considered in renovating traditional buildings of the late 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries, concentrating on detached and terraced housing, retail and commercial premises, warehouses and other industrial buildings typical of those found in Britain's towns and cities. Detailed sections describe the assessment, repair, and upgrading of structures built of masonry, timber, cast and wrought iron, and mild steel. It also covers the design and construction aspects of foundation strengthening and retention of the facades of buildings and includes sources of further information.
