Digital Recording of Existing and Historic Buildings for Conservation 
Date: October 7, 2020
Presenter: Mario Santana Quintero

This is a recording of a live event.

Recording the physical characteristics of historic and existing structures is a cornerstone of retrofit, rehabilitation, preventive maintenance, monitoring and conservation.  The information produced by such work guides decision-making by property owners, site managers, public officials, and conservators. Rigorous documentation may also serve a broader purpose: over time, it becomes the primary means by which scholars and the public apprehends a site that has since changed radically or disappeared. In times of COVID-19 pandemic, the availability of reliable documentation of existing and heritage places, in particular real-time sensors providing information can allow to prevent secondary threats such as looting, fires or other unforeseen issues when not monitoring the site.  The courses have two aims: (a) to acquaint participants with a wide range of recording techniques; and (b) to help students decide which techniques are best suited to which sites and objectives. Led by an expert in the field, the training program will benefit from instruction in various branches of the recording work.
