Conservation Surveys

Conservation survey is a detailed document investigating a site/settlement/city. It contains a historic-cultural and architectural survey of the whole complex as well as more meticulous examination (in documents called “survey files”) of its components (structural or landscape).

The “survey files” include technical details, description of the current condition, historical survey and analysis of values and cultural significance.

The survey document concludes with a formulation of the overall conservation perception regarding the surveyed site/settlement/city, serving as basis for the ensuing conclusions and recommendations.

The survey document itself has no statutory status – it rather comprises an infrastructure for the compilation of the conservation urban plan (can be defined as the first phase in the preparation of such plan).

Example of a conservation survey | Kibbutz MaanitKibbutz Maanit was established in Karkur in 1935, and built on its current location in 1942 according to the plans prepared by the architect Zeev Rechter. The first decade in Maanit was characterized by building of public and service structures, residential buildings and children houses, many of which remained until today (with various changes).
This project is a conservation survey of historic buildings and sites at the borders of the kibbutz. It includes historical survey, physical survey and preparation of survey files.
The objective of this project is to gain informative tools needed for decision making regarding each separate structure and site, as well as concerning the overall conservation recommendations for the kibbutz.
