Fifteen years of research, hands-on experimentation and actual restoration/conservation projects in our geographic region of the Caribbean, brought about the need to put in writing what the results of these activities had been and continue to be for us.

As a consequence, a proposal was put together to the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training of the United States Department of the Interior, National Park Service to obtain the matching funds to be able to put together a Field Manual that would assist professionals in the construction field who lack formal preservation training but deal with the built patrimony in our region.

Herein, basic Conservation and Preservation concepts would be pragmatically explained and illustrated, utilizing, for acclaratory purposes, case studies of preservation projects in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

This research was made possible through Grant MT-0424-5-NC-28 from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT).
