Columbus Landmarks is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that advocates for historic preservation and new design excellence. The organization publishes annually a list of Most Endangered Buildings and actively advocates for reuse, relying on architectural/historical significance and sustainability factors to build the case for preservation.

During the session you will:

  1. Learn about the nine most endangered buildings in Columbus - their significance, current condition and how/why they are threatened
  2. Examine incentives/ economic tools for reusing historic buildings
  3. Discuss the impact of demolition: discarding embodied energy; sending materials to landfills; using more energy consumptive materials in replacement construction; loss of economic value inherent to historic sites
  4. Gain understanding of the niche economic sector of historic preservation including the skilled trades and construction materials required for preservatioin projects

This course is pending for 1 GBCI CE and 1 AIA LU/HSW.
