Renovation of Historical Buildings

Reviewing the heritage assessment report is crucial before starting a new project with a historical component. That will determine what may stay and what can be removed during renovations. It is vitally essential for the programme that you comprehend this.

Historical buildings are typically renovated in one of three ways:

  • Basic – Historical elements that have been restored
  • Intermediate – Restoration of heritage aspects while selective removal of non-heritage elements
  • Advanced – keeping only the original components and getting rid of anything else

Basic Historical Building Renovation

This approach can be used if you simply wish to restore a few certain building elements. If there is ageing antique millwork in a corridor, for instance, you may decide to repair it. Restoring antique elements to their natural colour by painting over them.

These are typically more targeted, smaller repairs made to emphasise the special qualities of the structure.

The following stage simply entails eliminating all non-heritage components or at least a portion of them from the structure.

As an illustration, you could just have historical value in the form of sculptures or facades, in which case you might modernise the interior finishes and systems while leaving the historical components in tact or preserving them. The building still stands.

Advanced Historical Building Renovation

Although this is the most intrusive and time-consuming procedure, there is a significant trend in favour of it, particularly in metropolitan areas.

All building components that aren't protected must be removed as part of advanced heritage restoration techniques.
