Abstract


This article describes a complex approach to the condition survey and design executed as part of the remedial works on Konstantinovsky palace in the suburb of Strelna (Saint Petersburg)--one of the most beautiful historic monuments of 18th century Russia. The palace was almost completely destroyed in the 1940s. In 2000 the decision was made to reconstruct the palace, and the project for palace reconstruction was developed. The project was completed in 2003. The following important stages of the project are discussed in this paper: palace condition survey and site investigations, analyses of the palace retaining structures, design project of palace reconstruction, and phases of the remedial works.
