Reaching New Heights with Roof Deck Design

Roof decks are increasingly popular features on new construction and renovation projects. For older buildings, however, existing roof structural and enclosure systems can pose design limitations on both the scale and scope of new roof decks. In this workshop, we will review structural and building enclosure solutions for adding a new roof deck to an existing building.

Structuring the Future of Patient Care for the UVM Medical Center Miller Inpatient Building

Considerations for AEC Teams Working in Buildings with Older Structural Systems

Speaker(s): Steven Hall
Older buildings are integral to the culture and character of metropolitan areas, but can present challenges in adaptive reuse projects. In this presentation, we will discuss common limitations of older structures and how teams can navigate these challenges to create a modern space within the confines of the existing building.
