Preservation survey

Preservation survey

An inventory of property that can be limited to a carefully defined geographic area, such as a neighborhood or enclave of buildings, or it can encompass an entire state or the nation. It can be limited to places of obvious cultural significance or individual building types, such as commercial, or it can cover all built and natural resources. The amount of information can include construction dates and architectural style, as well as an in-depth analysis of an individual structure, such as measured drawings, photographs, chain-of-title information, and technical architectural descriptions. Far-reaching surveys can include the area’s social and economic factors, development patterns, visual relationships and design elements. A survey pro-duces a wealth of material such as historical data, development statistics, photographs, measured drawings and maps.
