Abstract [en]

Sweden’s foremost architectural monument, the Royal Palace of Stockholm, is now officially the object of a profoundly large architectural heritage conservation project. Such projects are always challenging on many levels, not only because monuments are unique structures, but also because all actions and interventions need to be well justified, optimal, and ultimately acceptable to the public. The project for the conservation of the Royal Palace is estimated to last for the next 22 years and it includes a set of sub-programs, one of which is the “Long-term maintenance of the facades”. Focusing on the sub-program for the long-term maintenance of the facades, the authors discuss aspects related to the research that was carried out in order to investigate the structure, to suggest and justify required interventions. Additionally, methods applied to geometrically document the structure are presented here along with reflections on the information management system that will be employed so as to accommodate the documentation needs and information flow for this massive project. The entire case study is presented in conjunction to the ICOMOS “Recommendations for the analysis, conservation and structural restoration of architectural heritage” in an effort to highlight important aspects of the investigation and the decision making process.
