Green Maintenance of Heritage Buildings: A Sustainable Repair Approach examines current maintenance perspectives and repair practices of heritage buildings, and evaluates the efficacy of repair techniques using the Green Maintenance model, which promotes sustainable and environmentally efficient solutions. Using case studies of heritage buildings in both tropical and cold climates, the author’s testing of the Green Maintenance model demonstrates that the selection of repair options can be based not only on cost and philosophy of heritage building conservation, but also how ‘green’ repair techniques are. The book covers key aspects of the maintenance of heritage buildings, from dilapidation and environmental impact to the integration of a Conservation Plan and sustainable repairs, suitably illustrated with photographs. It also offers sound advice to all those involved in sustainable repair, and serves as a useful resource in heritage building conservation.
