The paper describes the renovation and reconstruction of listed buildings in an hirstoric city-their planning, temporary works, design, and construction.
The life of concrete structures in service depends not only on the production and placing of durable concrete, but also on proper design, detailing and construction methods, and on appropriate levels of maintenance. Past and present procedures for achieving this are reviewed, shortcomings identlped, and suggestions made for improvement in the future.
The paper makes some observations and suggestions about developing an approach to conservation that includes the consideration of a building’s anatomy and structure. It describes the reconstruction of the Great Hall roof of Bedford School as an example of this approach.
