Abstract. The growing interest within the construction industry in the preservation, rehabilitation, and conservation of heritage-value buildings has led to the implementation of Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM). Especially in Greece, where the number of historical buildings is considerably large, having efficient and standardized processes of Cultural Heritage management and conservation becomes a prerequisite. The rigorously accurate representation of old constructions requires specific geometric modelling processes in order to generate the necessary relevant libraries of parametric objects. This paper describes the development of a parametrized library for the main parts of a Doric Temple to be used for introducing such parts in an HBIM system. Moreover, to verify the correctness of the parametrized column an application is performed in which the dimensions of a real column are compared with the dimensions of the standard one. The study improves the potential of the BIM process for its application to buildings with distinctive architecture in the context of the preservation or conversion of heritage buildings. In first section the term HBIM is explained and its usefulness to cultural heritage (CH) is justified. Section 2 describes previous attempts to create HBIM libraries for historic structures. After that, the construction of parametric model, which was created with visual programming Dynamo, is presented. Finally, the efficiency of the adjustment of a standard column to a given point cloud is described and in the end the results of the application are compared and discussed.
