Maintaining Historic Masonry and Wooden Buildings and Unraveling 123 Years of Wear and Tear on a Masonry Building
Oct 8 and 9

AIA Spokane and the Spokane City/County Historic Preservation Office are pleased to have Mark Liebman, an expert in the field of investigative restoration, offer two presentations on Oct 8 and 9 focusing on maintainance of heritage buildings.

The Oct 8 evening presentation will explore the means and methods of construction of traditional masonry and wooden structures, the causes of structural and material deterioration and how to best address and repair the resultant damage. Liebman will address issues concerning sustainability, nondestructive investigative techniques and the value of preservation. Information and Registration.

The Oct 9 morning presentation at the downtown Genesee building (limited to 20 people) is a “hands-on” workshop allowing Liebman to demonstrate how to look at a historic building, how to analyze the building envelope for signs of material degradation and structure distress and how to assess the interior of a building.
