The conditions and defects observed and recorded were those visible
at the date of inspection. The structural, electrical and HVAC
systems of the structure were not evaluated. Investigation was
limited to visual analysis of the structure and its components.
No in situ physical analysis (viz.: probing, scraping,
tapping, or any other physical intervention), monitoring, or testing
was undertaken. Nor were any samples obtained for laboratory analysis
Contractors should not be expected to quote for or carry out
any of the specialized work recommended without further guidance;
they should be provided with a proper specification or, if the
particular work is very minor, they should be asked to submit
their detailed proposals for the Architect to review and consider
for approval. Even small errors in workmanship, materials, or
design can turn a restoration project into a structural, physical,
or aesthetic disaster.
