How are you addressing your campus’ historic facilities with so many competing needs for limited resources? This webinar will outline strategies for the management of historic properties on college and university campuses, with guidelines, standards, and best practices to address a wide range of concerns dealing with historic facilities.

Preservation of your historic facilities can also be an important part of your long-term plan for a sustainable future for your campus and the planet. Upkeep, renovation, and repurposing of existing structures are seen by many as an essential part of flattening the carbon curve. We will consider examples of successful efforts to integrate sustainability, preservation, and practical re-use of older facilities.

HVAC upgrades in historic buildings present numerous challenges that are only amplified when working in a campus setting. The process for HVAC projects in campus historic buildings will be discussed along with the newest challenge of upgrading systems to provide safer interior environments to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

  3. Consider available strategies to update HVAC systems in historic buildings, including safer interior environments to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
