Description

The nature of refurbishment and repair is markedly different from new-build work since it is necessary to work within the restraints of a pre-determined situation. First and foremost it is essential for those involved in this type of work to gain an intimate knowledge of the structure under consideration. This book suggests ways of seeking this knowledge. It proceeds logically through the reasons to consider refurbishment and repair and offers advice on risks, discovery, contracts, materials, learning from the past and legal restraints. Case studies illustrate best practices and extensive bibliographies to assist in further research.
