Early Partnerships for Successful Restorations

Historic buildings aren't built the same way modern buildings are, requiring specialists that understand their particular quirks and challenges when repairing or restoring them. Developing partnerships with qualified restoration specialists early on in the project can keep owners, the design team, and the contractors all on the same page while also meeting the Secretary of the Interior's Standards. This session will cover what qualities to look for when hiring these specialists, how to identify and prioritize repairs, how early partnering with restoration specialists can ensure repair options meet the Secretary of the Interior's Standards, and the importance of developing mock-ups.
