From the Preservation Approach section of the UGA Historic Preservation Master Plan, a range of potential Actions related to facility planning, design, construction, and management are included in the Implementation Matrix and defined below for clarity of appropriate application. Please refer to the guide for How to Use the Impementation Matrix for additional information.
Master Planning– Master planning encompasses a range of activities oriented toward the articulation of a long-term vision for growth and/or transformation at scales ranging from an individual facility to the entire campus.
Routine Maintenance – Routine Maintenance involves in-kind replacement and finish refreshes. Maintenance activities that do not impact historic details, materials, features, spaces, or buildings may be conducted using Best Management Practices. Where historic materials, features, spaces, or buildings are proposed for change or removal, the CPO must be consulted.
Corrective Maintenance – Corrective Maintenance involves the disruption, removal, and/or replacement of worn or damaged materials including exterior and interior architectural details, selective window/door replacement, floor/wall/ceiling wall repair or replacement, exterior surface coatings, masonry repointing, and roof penetrations, among others. Corrective Maintenance also includes emergency procedures. Where historic materials, features, spaces, or buildings are proposed for change or removal, the CPO must be consulted.
Minor/Moderate Rehabilitation – Minor/Moderate Rehabilitation involves substantial alteration to interior or exterior spaces and/or materials including large-scale finish alteration, comprehensive window and door replacement, exterior penetrations, small exterior additions (non-programmatic), majors systems upgrades (MEP/FP), roof replacement, room subdivision and consolidation, accessibility alterations, and additions (elevators, ramps, steps).
Major/Extensive Rehabilitation – Major/Extensive Rehabilitation involves the comprehensive rehabilitation of complete buildings, floors, or wings, including complete MEP/FP systems installation/replacement, and substantial reconfiguration of or alteration to existing building volumes, spaces, and circulation patterns.
Additions/New Construction – Additions/New Construction involves an addition to an existing building or new out-of-the-ground buildings, and typically entails substantial ground disturbance/ excavation, which triggers archaeological review.
Demolition/Dispossession – All activities resulting in the demolition, removal, or transfer of any property 50 years of age or older requires Georgia State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) consultation and Board of Regents (BOR) approval. BOR will not review Demolition/Dispossession proposals until Determinations of Eligibility and Assessments of Effects have been issued by the SHPO.
Ground Disturbance – Land disturbing activities involving boring, excavation, trenching, grading, cut and fill, and grubbing trigger archaeological review.
