Building Environment

Practical Building Conservation


Get from publisher

Practical Building Conservation is a ten-part series that looks at the conservation of building materials and systems. It builds on our research and field experience and is aimed at those who work on or look after historic buildings: primarily architects, surveyors, engineers, conservators, contractors and conservation officers, but also owners, curators, students and researchers.

This volume, Building Environment, looks at the interaction between building materials and systems and their surroundings and how this may lead to deterioration, outlining the evolution of building envelope design and environmental control systems. It presents ways of assessing remedial treatments, and includes discussions on occupant health, and sustainable retrofitting.
