This guide is designed to serve those architects and surveyors who are increasingly obliged to carry out full and detailed measurement of historic and listed buildings. This process of recording involves collaboration between a variety of professionals and will also be of interest to architectural historians, archaeologists, builders and planners. Commissioned by ICOMOS, it charts the steps necessary to ensure the maintenance of adequate records of the original nature and subsequent evolution of historic buildings. It lists all the aspects of technical documentation and scientific measurement of historic buildings, including photogrammetry, electronic distance measurement (EDM) and technical dating methods. The results of this documentation are essential to the proper preparation of schemes of maintenance, repair and adaptation by building owners, planners and members of the building professions.

This guidance describes a method of recording historic buildings for the purpose of historical understanding using analytical site drawing and measuring by hand. The techniques described here have a long tradition of being used to aid understanding by observation and close contact with building fabric. They can be used by all involved in making records of buildings of all types and ages, but are particularly useful for vernacular buildings and architectural details which are crucial to the history of a building or site. . Record drawings are best used alongside other recording techniques such as written reports and photography or to supplement digital survey data. They can also be used as a basis for illustrations that disseminate understanding to wider audiences.

This Historic England guidance sets out the process of investigating and recording historic buildings for the purposes of historical understanding. It aims to assist professional practitioners and curators, managers of heritage assets, academics, students and volunteer recorders in compiling or commissioning records that are accurate and suited to the purposes for which they are intended. For those undertaking recording themselves it provides practical advice on surveying, photography and report writing. It also assists those managing the built environment to set appropriate specifications for the recording of historic buildings by others.

Measured and Drawn sets out to show how, through working closely with historians, conservators and archaeologists, optimum documentation can be achieved by metric survey. It explains how the balance between precision, cost and time when applying metric technologies to heritage documentation can be achieved by choosing an appropriate method and making sure project information requirements are understood by all from the start.Measured and Drawn examines control, detail and procurement, and concludes with case studies of metric survey projects undertaken on historic buildings and structures ranging from Battle Abbey Courthouse to the nave ceiling at Peterborough Cathedral. It is prepared in sequence with Where on Earth Are We? The Global Positioning System in archaeological field survey (2003), Understanding Historic Buildings: a guide to good recording practice (2006) and 3D Laser scanning for Heritage: advice and guidance to users on laser scanning in archaeology and architecture (2007) as part of an ongoing series of technical guides on heritage documentation.The second edition is prepared in response to the publication of English Heritage’s Conservation Principles: policies and guidance for the sustainable management of the historic environment (2008) which has placed documenting and learning from decisions as a core principle, with accessible records recognised as essential to the conservation process. The principles outline the need for adequate records in managing change to significant places.

This book focuses on the theories and practices for analysing and recording the vast range of small historic buildings that constitute the core element of Britain's built landscape. It examines what has been done and what still needs to be achieved to preserve and understand our architectural heritage. Chapters explore the historic context of the discipline, the significant increase in the amount and type of building recording following new government policy guidance procedures, the necessity for informed conservation to rest on detailed understanding of particular buildings, the problems encountered by professional consultants, the development of new research techniques and applications, education, the role of voluntary recorders, and the pressing needs to better storage and access for records.
