Historic Preservation, Building Codes, and Resiliency
Historic properties play a major role in many communities as the foundation for thriving neighborhoods, the backbone of business districts, the settings for heritage tourism experiences, the substance of educational programs, and as the centerpieces of cultural events.

These workshops are designed to address the unique way in which historic properties are maintained and rehabilitated within building, fire, life safety, coastal construction, and accessibility codes. Participants will learn how design review is accomplished within a historic district and how creative strategies for code compliance can be successfully incorporated into adaptive use projects. Contemporary challenges such as sea level rise and adaptability strategies will be emphasized.
