From Concept to Reality: Preservation Project Planning Basics
July 17, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Planning to tackle some major rehabilitation work on your historic building, but not sure where to start? This Forum Webinar will give an overview of the process of architectural design and construction practiced by architects, engineers, contractors and preservationists, which provides the framework for most rehabilitation projects.
Based on her experience as Preservation Architect at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, working closely with Partners for Sacred Places to provide technical assistance to congregations in the National Fund for Sacred Places program, Olivia Tarricone will give an overview of the typical process and steps to take a building rehab project from concept to reality. Allison King, Grants and Program Manager at Partners for Sacred Places, will give a brief introduction to the National Fund for Sacred Places, and Michael Rouse, principal architect at MPR Architecture, will provide insights from his experience as a Building Committee member at Lovely Lane United Methodist Church in Baltimore, which recently completed a $750,000 project to restore historic windows in their 1884 Chapel and upgrade building amenities to increase the use of their building by the entire community.
