Historic Buildings Survey

 

A Standing Building Survey is undertaken as part of the planning process in order to inform the creation of a strategy for the conservation, alteration or demolition of the standing building and its setting, and to preserve a record of the layout, chronology and surroundings of the building. The work involves a survey of the building and its setting and the formulation of a photographic record. The level of work to be completed can range from a Level 1 to a Level 4, with Level 4 being the most extensive. A Standing Building Survey informs the development of suitable and sympathetic conservation strategies and forms an integral part of the CoBRA (Conservation-Based Research and Analysis) approach advocated by Historic England.
