Abstract: The aim of the paper is to present a situation where visual inspection along with geotechnical and geodetic survey, was sufficient to design a temporary support for a badly damaged masonry structure of the Old mosque in Senkovici village.
The mosque, dating approximately from the 17th century, has not been in use for a long period, due to the increasingly negative environmental influence accompanied by constant lack of funding for repair and maintenance. Such a condition of this national monument, finally led to a nearly collapse state when steps were made towards temporary protection, to be followed by the final restoration and conservation project.
The load bearing elements are perimeter masonry walls along with timber structure of the gallery, roof and minaret. The walls are multi-leaf stone masonry, reinforced with horizontal timber lacing at two levels.
Decay of timber lacing almost caused a collapse state of the building, which required an immediate action. Lack of wall waterproofing system and water penetration through damaged areas were obvious.
The task for the engineer, seeking for a temporary protection solution, was to make an assessment, perform the required analysis and design a temporary supporting structure, with respect to future works on final restoration.
