Keywords: Historic Building Recordings

Are used to produce a record of a standing heritage asset prior to any works being undertaken or demolitions and can often be a planning requirement. A measured and photographic survey of the building is undertaken for the production of architectural drawings and a written report that shows the historical development and significant phases. Building recordings are categorised in four levels with the basic being a level 1 which identifies the buildings age, location, type, materials and includes basic drawings and photographs of the exterior and any significant features. A level 2 recording is similar to a level 1, but will include all of the exterior and interior with a more detailed conclusion of the building development. In addition to this, level 3 is an analytical record and will include more documentary evidence and a full set of measured drawings. The highest level is 4 and this comprises of a more comprehensive analytical record and more detailed research with in more depth discussion into all items of the buildings significance.
