Building recording is a common requirement on refurbishment and redevelopment projects. A building recording survey is usually undertaken before alteration or redevelopment of structures considered to be of archaeological or historical interest, in order to create a detailed record of their appearance.
It can be a vital part of gaining listed building consent. Building recording is undertaken at different levels of detail (1 to 4) to guidelines set by Historic England. APAC Ltd undertake a wide variety of building surveys every year from levels 1 to 4.
