URBAN AND BUILDING SURVEY
ÚRBANISTAN/Anna María Bogadóttir has extensive experience in urban planning and the assessment of built environments and buildings in collaboration with municipalities, companies, and the Reykjavik City Museum.
The assessment of built environments and buildings is an integral part of the process of developing zoning and master plans. The purpose of building assessments is to ensure that decisions regarding changes to the built environment or individual buildings are made with an understanding of their value in terms of the environment, history, and architectural significance. The work involves an artistic and historical perspective, surveying, analysis, evaluation, documentation, and assessment of the preservation value of the built environment and individual buildings. This includes on-site research and inspections, examination of drawings, photographs, and other documented sources that shed light on the architectural, environmental, and historical value of the structures in a comprehensive manner.
The building assessments are carried out in accordance with the Cultural Heritage Act of 2013 and the Planning Act of 2010. The process of urban planning and the assessment of built environments and buildings follows the guidance and registration standards set by the Cultural Heritage Agency of Iceland.
