Monument, archaeological site


In our country there is a large number of declared monuments and demarcated protection zones (prehistoric, classical, Byzantine and post-Byzantine). The study of the restoration of immovable monuments and the configuration of archaeological sites requires a specialized knowledge and experience as it is called to solve complex issues. During the first stage of the study, the Analysis :
 
  • The legislation is checked (designation of a monument, archeological site)
  • The monument is documented through archival research (architectural, photographic archives)
  • The current situation is captured using topographic instruments and traditional measurement techniques.
  • Where appropriate, photogrammetry and laser scanning technologies are applied during the imaging.
  • Detailed photography is done to document the current situation.
  • The pathology is recorded by locating the structural, building and aesthetic problems.

In the second stage, the Proposal :
 
  • The study is completed in all its successive stages (preliminary study, final study and implementation study).
  • The necessary approvals on a case-by-case basis are ensured by the competent services of the Ministry of Culture.
  • The detailed budget is drawn up.
