Using building and energy codes to solve code challenges in historic buildings

Friday, August 23, 2013 at 8:31 a.m.

Rehabilitating and reusing historic buildings can help municipalities, building owners and developers meet important objectives ranging from preserving local character, to encouraging green building, revitalization, and construction. But what about the challenges in bringing older buildings “Up to Code” – how can these projects work and still meet modern requirements for safety and efficiency? Architect Marilyn Kaplan (Preservation Architecture, Albany, NY), an expert in historic buildings, building codes and energy codes, will present a one day workshop on this subject. This workshop will include lunch and an interactive discussion with local experts. Program qualifies for Continuing Education Units for AIA HSW 6 CEUs, APA/AICP and ICC. Hosted by the City of Spokane with support from AIA Spokane, Inland Empire Section of the APA, Northwest Chapter of the ICC, and the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.
