Green Maintenance of Heritage Buildings: A Sustainable Repair
Approach examines current maintenance perspectives and repair
practices of heritage buildings, and evaluates the efficacy of repair
techniques using the Green Maintenance model, which promotes
sustainable and environmentally efficient solutions. Using case
studies of heritage buildings in both tropical and cold climates, the
author’s testing of the Green Maintenance model demonstrates that
the selection of repair options can be based not only on cost and
philosophy of heritage building conservation, but also how ‘green’
repair techniques are.
The book covers key aspects of the maintenance of heritage
buildings, from dilapidation and environmental impact to the
integration of a Conservation Plan and sustainable repairs, suitably
illustrated with photographs. It also offers sound advice to all those
involved in sustainable repair, and serves as a useful resource in
heritage building conservation.
