After the Windsor Castle fire in 1992, many efforts of restoration and reconstruction of several aspects were undertaken. Figure below shows the overall hierarchical view of the Windsor Palace.Windsor Castle fire 1992 caused Fabric damage to the castle structure; false ceiling in George castle fell. Apart from this fire caused damage until Chester Tower. Gothic theme was incorporated into the building design. The designers considered it because it exemplified the existing structure. In spite of criticism for lack of creativity and innovation, only restoration efforts were taken to ensure that the original integrity and motifs of the building remained the same.
Windsor Castle fire occurred recently and its efforts can be amalgamated into the restoration and preservation scheme of Glasgow building.
In all restorative efforts certain latitude was allowed for introducing the newer materials and fabric. Process of innovation, creativity and refurbishment usually tends to decline of fundamental themes of the building. Concepts that are developed should encompass repair and restoration efforts for “piano di diradamento”. Hence, repair and restoration efforts should be prudently developed keeping these ideologies in mind.
A good conservation, restoration plan should include preparation, prevention, protection and management. Decisions for the action plan should be based on logical sequence of events and there should be a proper rationale developed for formulating the action plan. This action plan that is formulated should be easily executed and should preserve the original characteristic feature of the buildings. Certain safety protocols must be incorporated to prevent damage in the future. Many heritage and historic site are found in areas of remote location this would greatly enhance the process.
To preserve the existing materials, there should be repositioning of the key artefacts and motifs to enable circulation and ensure safety. To maintain the internal fabric materials, it has been suggested that increasing of timber panelling alone will preserve the original ideology of the building and greatly provide safety for the occupants.
