"The book is clear and logical in its organisation, well illustrated both with photographs and case study examples … .A handy desk reference for the busy professional." (Journal of Architectural Conservation, November 2008)

"It is a highly informative text and, therefore, must be invaluable to those who are part of this very specialised area of the construction industry/academia." (Building Engineer)

'Set out in a clear print, with good use of colour, visual illustrations and abundant real-life examples and cases (clearly set out in highlighted boxes), this volume would definitely make a great supplementary, or even core text, for students of built heritage conservation . While the specialists would appreciate the new evaluation approach presented by the authors, I believe the book would be a useful read for all built environment professionals. The evaluation approach is applicable to all contemporary structures and this book is certainly worth consideration for facilities management professionals.' (Facilities)
