The core of any historic property management program is accurate information about the building. This seminar will explore the historic structures report—the principal tool used to document a site's history, condition, and maintenance—and emerging technologies, such as computer-aided facilities management programs.
This seminar is combined or offered in conjunction with Preservation Maintenance: Understanding and Preserving Historic Buildings.
Alfonso A. Narvaez, principal, Aeon Preservation Services LLC, with experience on technical preservation projects nationwide; formerly principal architectural conservator with John Milner Associates, Inc. and historical architect with the National Park Service
"[I learned] that an HSR is a process; not a document."
"The seminar set out in detail the players and process of preparing an HSR."
"The instructor is extremely knowledgeable. He was able to address the issues in a logical sequence and provide examples to clarify and illustrate."
"[I gained] understanding/learning HSR as a key tool for managing facility repair/renovations, especially for the Section 106 process."
"[The seminar] provided me with information needed for contracting a consultant to provide an HSR and the different ways by which an HSR would be effective tool and basis for reaching decisions concerning the treatment of historic structures."
Preservation architects; managers of historic properties and facilities; historians; others planning for or writing HSRs.
Self-reporting often is an option for members of professional organizations that require continuing education credits.
