Revitalize Your Campus: Repositioning in Higher Education
As colleges and universities look toward a post-COVID world, many are rethinking their capital programs for their building stock. As these institutions consider a return to some form of normalcy, they must balance current and future needs for their campuses while also grappling with larger sustainability issues related to climate change. To solve for these concerns, colleges and universities can reposition existing buildings to maintain the historic fabric of campus architecture and modernize existing facilities while reducing carbon footprint and waste stream. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of a repositioning project from architectural, structural, and building enclosure perspectives and explore the case study of Iona College’s LaPenta School of Business to provide examples demonstrating the challenges typically faced in each phase of a repositioning project. We will also discuss selected antiquated structural systems.
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Understand design challenges and opportunities in campus repositioning projects.
- Understand selected archaic structural systems.
- Recognize the potential challenges of upgrading existing building enclosure systems to meet current energy codes.
- Discuss technical and aesthetic issues related to renovating and adding to existing building systems.
