Transforming Historic Buildings for Efficiency and Resiliency

In this workshop, through lectures, site visits and hands-on demonstrations, we will look at strategies for improving energy efficiency in older and historic buildings including: investigating and documenting existing conditions; repairing historic window sash; insulation, weather-strip and air-sealing techniques; integrating alternative energy solutions without affecting historic character and materials; designing appropriate solutions for fire protection, flood proofing and seismic retrofits.
