In 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.
Through a combination of presentations, demonstrations, and panel discussions, participants in this workshop will learn about the latest technologies for obtaining the information and data critical for project planning, analysis, and diagnostics. Participants will also learn how to assemble an effective data gathering strategy to fit differing project needs.
AIA credits will be available! We are applying for HSW credits so stay tuned!
Originating at the Quebec APT Conference in 2014, this workshop has been formatted for travel in order to be hosted by local chapters across the country. Now, the APT Western Chapter has the unique circumstance to host the workshop at an amazing National Park with special access to the site as well as the NPS staff's expertise. Presenters are traveling from around the country and the local regional chapter to provide an exceptional workshop focused on documentation technologies from Measured Building Survey (MBS) and NDE tools to photogrammetry and HABS/HAER documentation.
