Though not the subject of a stand-alone test, questions pertaining to historic preservation are often found in multiple divisions of the Architectural Registration Exam. This presentation will explain the Standards for the Treatment of Historic Structures, published by the US Secretary of the Interior, which serve as the guidelines by which all preservation and historic renovation projects are evaluated by regulatory agencies.
Rollins will address the influence that those standards have on a project's design, and the process for obtaining the necessary state and local approvals. He will examine the differences between Preservation, Restoration, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction, as well as the circumstances governing which treatment should be employed. Rollins will also explore some of the archaic materials and construction methods encountered in historic renovations, and discuss the kinds of unique planning, design and construction issues they create.
