Program sponsor Marvin Windows will present a 1-hour AIA approved program Window Solutions for Historic Rehabilitation Projects (1 LU) followed by networking and tours.
Join us for a networking mega-mixer with SMPS Central PA Chapter members at the historic Christ Episcopal Church in Reading, winner of the 2021 Building Berks Awards Commercial Renovation/Restoration project. Mingle with other A/E/C firms over light fare and drinks while learning and then tour this award-winning project that included the removal and installation of 51- custom made, double insulated glazed, aluminum clad windows.
Complexities surround the rehabilitation of an historic building: tax credits, standards and guidelines, performance requirements, and the range of product solutions available based on the building’s condition and intended use. This course is designed to educate participants on the importance of fenestration in relation to the building’s exterior, provide best practices to be employed throughout the project and examine how Standards and Guidelines from the US Department of Interior are applied to window repair or window replacement.
