A Model Proposal for Documentation, Monitoring and Analysis of Building Façades
Paper in proceedings, 2007

Pro-active long-term maintenance and sustainable conservation of immovable cultural heritage as well as recent built environments at large constitutes a vital challenge for involved actors. Such an actor is the public property owner and housing corporation Förvaltnings AB Framtiden (Inc.) in Göteborg in Sweden. Through its subsidiary companies the Framtiden-group owns a building-stock of considerable proportions. This paper presents a proposal for an application-oriented model for photogrammetric documentation, monitoring, and analysis of material conditions and occurring deterioration phenomena, of façades of residential buildings. It is argued that such a model strongly will contribute to development of a valid and consistent platform of relevant knowledge anticipated to support establishment of vital strategies for long-term maintenance of built environments. A collaborative network has been established in order to provide the model in progress with a viable vocational and scholarly-scientific mix of needed competences.
