Abstract (in English)

Building regulations, documents written primarily to describe appropriate construction materials and techniques for modern construction, present a universal problem to the protection of historic property. The application of their specifications and restriction to the historic resource often mandates the destruction, removal or obscuring of the very qualities and materials that give a property its architectural or cultural significance.
