This practical guide to the assessment and repair of historic buildings is invaluable for structural engineers, architects, surveyors and builders working in all aspects of building conservation. Taking a practical step-by-step approach, the authors discuss the appraisal of buildings and the differences in structural behaviour between new and existing structures. Each stage in the appraisal is explained, using examples from the authors' own work.
Each major construction material is assessed in detail, with separate sections on masonry, concrete, timber and the particularly complex issues of iron and steel framed buildings. Techniques for testing the ability of a building to continue its existing use or to be converted to a new use are explained.
· Detailed guide to appraisal and repair of historic buildings
· Analyses the key differences between new and existing structures
· Written by practitioners and illustrated with examples from their direct experience

This book is essentially practical, giving valuable advice on procedures and inspections and reporting in subsequent chapters..it takes a great deal of thought to find simple and eleegant solutions to complex problems but Beckmann has shown it can be done.
