New Buildings from Old: Some Views on Refurbishment Projects

The author has spent much of his professional life assessing the condition of existing buildings for maintenance, repair; refurbishment, extension and change of use. He had a feature article published in The Structural Engineer (1 November 1994 ); it set out some of the skills which he considered were required by structural engineers taking on building appraisal and refurbishment projects. This paper examines the whole subject of building refurbishment in some greater detail. B.P. Clancy
