Abstract / Description of output

This briefing synthesises the extensive and specialist operations that have been happening in the last 2 years at the major restoration site of the Notre Dame in Paris, France, framing them within their cultural, political and administrative context. Although all key decisions have been taken already, there are many interesting stages that professional engineers can learn for projects of similar scale and exposure. The briefing also aims to stimulate a reflection on engineers’ and architects’ reactions to such traumatic events, professionally and institutionally.
