Based on new and award-winning building projects, this webinar presents our “expert faculty” to examine the key issues affecting project owners, designers and contractors in case studies ranging from gut renovations and adaptive reuses to restorations and retrofits.
Nuts-and-bolts issues are discussed, including:
How to assess an existing building for reconstruction options
The recladding and reroofing of existing structures
Energy-efficiency retrofits; structural upgrades
Ways to promote green building and LEED certification
The case studies and faculty presenters are all current winners of the 27th Annual Reconstruction Awards, a program presented in 2010 by Building Design+Construction magazine. Their project types include institutional campuses, downtown commercial developments and freestanding industrial facilities, with budgets of $9 million to $30 million and up.
Jean Carroon, FAIA, LEED AP, is a principal in Goody Clancy’s highly regarded preservation practice and the author of Sustainable Preservation: Greening Existing Buildings. She has earned national recognition for her expertise in applying sustainable-design technology to historic buildings.
