Architectural Significance: Describe the building’s predominant style, main architectural features, traditional materials used in its construction, construction methodology and architectural significance (using photos, sketches, technical drawings, videos and relevant graphic material).
Historic Building Condition Survey: Carry out a health check on the historic building, identifying any areas of dilapidation, structural weaknesses and potential issues that may result in a conservation deficit and affect the ongoing preservation of the building (using photos, sketches, technical drawings, schedules, videos and relevant graphic material). If the building is in good condition then you may produce a conservation management plan to keep the building in good order for the next 10-20 years.
Historic Building Adaptation: Consider possible options for the sensitive adaptation of the building to improve its functional capacity or thermal performance. Highlight any issues that may arise through the legislative framework for historic building conservation (the building is in a conservation area and it may also be listed depending on the building you select – if it is not possible to adapt the building you must explain why). You may also choose to critique a previous adaptation of the building suggest ways in which this could have been improved.
Historic and Cultural Significance: Identify the building’s historic, cultural and communal values. Describe the importance of the building within the historic environment, in accordance with national and international frameworks, policies and charters for historic building conservation.
