Here it is about to prevent another looming loss of substance. Typical measures include roof renovations, static interventions to eliminate a risk of collapse, removal of virulent water damage (pipe breaks, etc.) and provisional measures to secure parts of the building (supports, covers, etc.).
Creation of a status report2
This not only covers the actual physical situation (room book, measurements, land use, etc.), but also includes the legal framework and the integration into other existing structures. Structural changes of the past have to be uncovered and evaluated. As far as possible, the basic concept of the historical builder should be determined and put into relation with the existing substance.
By a historian, the historical sources are to be determined and evaluated the monument. As far as possible, the help of regional authorities as well as public or church institutions is used. In any case, a detailed documentation is to be created.
Creation of a possible usage concept4
The future use is essential for the actual restructuring. When creating a conception, the historical concept, the actual historical use and various possibilities for future use should be reconciled. Aspects of sustainability as well as recent findings in building physics must be taken into account for the usage concept as well as increased demands on the comfort of use. The subsequent use must in any case include the permanent economic ability to self-sustain the structure.
In cooperation with architects, structural engineers, etc., the legally required submission plan must be prepared. The preservation of monuments must be integrated early in this phase.
The permitting phase must be accompanied by the senior architect. Insofar as historic preservation permits must be obtained separately, they must be requested in the required form. In this phase, close contact with the approval authority is to be maintained
Here is the procedure according to the following scheme:
a. The historical substance is to be conserved as far as possible and to be trained
b. Necessary interventions in the substance are to be kept as small as possible
c. Over time, losses of substance are gross. to be corrected by supplements of the same kind and quality based on the substance.
d. Reconstructions are permissible insofar as the historical picture is restored. New additions are to be avoided.
e. Contemporary encores are in principle dismantle.
f. The state of the art today has to be considered. In particular, safety aspects (fire protection, occupational safety, etc.), environmental aspects (insulation, noise protection, energy and CO2 efficiency), accessibility (lifts, thresholds, etc.) and the promotion of planned use must be taken into account.
g. In case of conflict, the Board of Trustees decides.
As far as the monument was taken over without historical inventory, a careful reinventing should be done to promote the holistic character of the monument. It is important to pay attention to style and function. Superfluous kitsch is to be avoided.
Transition to future use9
After completion of the work, a new documentation about the structural situation has to be prepared. The persons responsible for the later use are to introduce into the circumstances of the monument. Sensitive areas or unusual operations are to be explained. About the introduction is to create a protocol that is to be signed by the users.
