Restoration and preservation is happening everywhere! Mark your calendar and plan to attend the following events:

An investigation of the Nebraska State Capitol (BVH Architects Photograph)

Association of Preservation Technology – Central Plains Documentation Technologies Workshop
April 28-29, 2017
Joslyn Castle

In rehabilitating important existing structures, it is crucial to begin by fully and accurately gathering data on geometry and current conditions. Documentation data form the platform for condition analysis and the basis for engineers and architects to develop designs, from the planning phase through implementation during construction. The workshop on Friday and field presentations on Saturday will provide the latest technology in assessing the conditions of older properties. Topics include laser scanning, infrared thermography, surface penetrating radar and metal detection, portable X-ray fluorescence, drones and tablet-based apps for architects.
