This on-site practical training module provides an introduction to the measured survey of historic buildings. It offers students practical experience of evaluating and applying the most common techniques employed for recording standing fabric. Starting from sketch planning and visual analysis, we explore a range of survey techniques including: record photography, planning by hand, stone-by-stone recording, and instrument-based survey (e.g. using total station).
