TLC’s very own Brian McSweeney is presenting on Adaptive Reuse during a Lunch Session on Thursday July 28 from 11:15am to 12:30 pm. Make sure you don’t miss this session!
The renovation and adaptive reuse of historic buildings is a complex and challenging task for all involved, from owners to architects and engineers. This presentation seeks to highlight key techniques to overcome these hurdles and deliver a successful project, with a focus on structural engineering and extensions of those lessons to other disciplines. This presentation breaks down lessons learned into the stages of the initial schematic design, development of the construction documents, permitting and historic review (local and national), and construction – as the unexpected is encountered. Creativity is crucial to success, as this presentation will demonstrate through the use of case studies, since every historic building project is unique and requires attention to detail.
