Description

This seminar describes the steps to take to determine if your existing building and site can be modified to meet your needs and whether it is better to renovate it, knock it down and rebuild, or move to a new site. Using real examples of station renovation, you will learn about evaluating the existing conditions and how to get the information you need to make valid decisions. Examples will include before/after transition images to help you learn to visualize when a building is a “diamond in the rough.”
