There remain other forms of contractual arrangement including package deals of various sorts, ‘turnkey’ contracts, and schemes based on design, develop and construct methodology. In general these other types of contractual arrangement are not particularly well suited to sensitive conservation work on historic buildings and ancient monuments. For this reason they are not referred to here in greater detail. High speed fast track methods and industrialized technology are generally totally inappropriate to conservation work. True conservation will usually embrace the best facets of the ‘leave as found’ philosophy using traditional craft skills carefully employed to match the original fabric both in technology and, when possible, in the materials used.
