About this webinar
There are approximately 111 million buildings in the U.S. totaling over 340 billion square feet of existing space. The exterior envelopes of these aging buildings are uniquely susceptible to weathering, decay, and a variety of other issues that may develop over time. To properly maintain, improve, and renovate any building, an architect must have a reliable point of departure from which their team can base their decision-making. In this course, the team from Existing Conditions will provide attendees with the information they need to leverage technology to properly evaluate the enclosures of existing buildings. By completing this course, participants will better understand how to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the occupants of the built environment and the local community.
What you’ll learn
- Learn how to leverage technology to properly evaluate the enclosures of existing buildings.
- Discover how to reduce health and safety risks for both building occupants and the local community while working on an existing, aging building.
- Gain insight about the challenges of working on aging buildings and discover how to manage health and safety priorities on these types of sites as well as how to reduce potential safety risks to the public and future building occupants.
- Comprehend the general strategies available to protect the health, safety, and welfare of building occupants through the use of reality capture and existing conditions surveys.
