April 30, 2020– The Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans is continuing to host free online classes on various preservation related issues from wood window repair to New Orleans architecture. However, what is perhaps the most relevant to ACKlimate and our readers is a free class titled “Historic Buildings as a Climate Response Tool”
This class took place on April 27th, and the link is available on the ACKlimate resource page under Webinar and Conference Recordings. It was through Zoom and Facebook live stream that the content from experts around the world were able to share their information with a large audience. Andrew Potts, JD, of the International Council of Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and the Climate Heritage Network, and Z. Smith, FAIA, Director of Sustainability and Building Performance at Eskew Dumez Ripple bring the riveting and thought-provoking discussion on building reuse and the importance of historic resources as a tool to fight climate change.
PRCNOLA is hosting another free class online on May 13th at 2:00-3:00 pm (eastern) titled “Managing Moisture: How to Identify and Repair Damage Caused by Water Intrusion.” This class will be held in the same format as the previous one. If you wish to view that class via zoom please register here or if you just want to watch, it will be available via Facebook. Bill Robinson of Train2Build is the instructor and will cover detection, identification, and mitigation or repair.
