This image represents the technological advancements that aim to support preventative conservation of important historic buildings. Through regular monitoring of buildings, the research seeks to slow the process of decay, identifying areas for early intervention, before damage becomes too costly or difficult to repair. Working with the Public Works Department in Malaysia, Strathclyde intends to establish a building information modelling (HBIM) preventive conservation framework.
