Therefore, there are necessary preventive measures and implementation of damage control solutions on cultural heritage. Many heritage buildings in Bucharest are in an advanced state of decay. For this reason the paper purpose is to use laser scanning technique for preserving heritage buildings. This technique is an effective method of restoring of the old buildings with high accuracy and precision for performing various conservation works. The advantages are that the investigation is non-invasive, rapid, precise and environmentally friendly.
