Founded in 1839 by William Otter, the Bishop of Chichester, the campus boasts a rich history that spans 180 years. The University proudly maintains its historical essence through the preservation of original structures, which were architecturally crafted in a neo-Tudor style by J. Butler.
One such historically significant area, Paradise Court, required a meticulous restoration to safeguard and revitalise the external stonework of the original buildings. Recognising the importance of preserving this heritage, our Heritage Survey Department was commissioned to conduct a thorough mapping and analysis of the condition of each stone on the historic facades.
To create precise 2D drawings capturing the intricate details of every individual stone, our team employed a laser scanner survey complemented by a high-resolution photo campaign. By combining the detailed drawings at a scale of 1:20 with High-Resolution Orthophotos, we achieved an accurate representation of the exposed stonework, textured with a rectified photo collage. This comprehensive dataset serves as a crucial tool in identifying the stone types, materials used in the construction, and assessing their state of conservation or damage.
The analysis is further enhanced by highlighting areas of decay on the 2D drawings through coloured hatches, as per a key list naming various types of decay. This meticulous process ensures that every single stone is thoroughly examined, providing invaluable insights into the preservation needs of our historic facades.
