Building pathology provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of defects and performance in order to develop appropriate remedial and management solutions. It considers how the structure and materials of a building relate to its environment, its occupants and the way the building is used, so as to develop a better understanding of building failures.

This book provides a well illustrated introduction to the discipline of building pathology, bridging the gap between current approaches to the surveying of buildings and the detailed study of defect diagnosis, prognosis and remediation. It features a number of case studies and a detailed set of references and further reading.

This second edition has been updated to reflect changes in legislation, guidance and construction, and provides new case studies that demonstrate the breadth and depth of the subject.

About the Author:

He is also Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for Sustainable Heritage at University College London. He has worked in both private and public sectors, and was Conservation Officer with Norfolk County Council between 1991–6 and Senior Research Fellow at De Montfort University between 1996–05. He is co-author of Surveying Historic Buildings and Measurement and Recording of Historic Buildings, and was Editor of the Journal of Architectural Conservation for ten years until 2005.

Review:

"David Watt has written a good book: informative, well researched and readable...a welcome addition to the literature on building defects and remedial action" Chartered Surveyor Monthly


"An excellent introduction to the subject of building defects and their remediation, as well as being a useful reference work and aide-memoire for experienced workers in the field. It should attract a wide readership among architects, surveyors and building scientists in various disciplines." Journal of Architectural Conservation

'Watt has produced a fine textbook, combining holistic thinking with clear practical advice, lucid writing and some lovely illustrations.' McCaffer.com
