OVERVIEW:

In In rehabilitating important existing structures, it is crucial to begin by fully and accurately gathering data on geometry and current conditions. Documentation data form the platform for condition analysis and the basis for engineers and architects to develop designs, from the planning phase through implementation during construction. Through a combination of presentations, demonstrations, and panel discussions, participants in this workshop will learn about the latest technologies for obtaining the information and data critical for project planning, analysis, and diagnostics. Participants will also learn how to assemble an effective data gathering strategy to fit differing project needs.

BROADWAY TRADE CENTER DOWNTOWN LA 

WORKSHOP | TOUR | RECEPTION

The Broadway Trade Center located at 801 Broadway was the site of the former Hamburger’s Department Store which opened in 1908. Designed by Alfred F. Rosenheim, this building was one of the first department stores to operate in Los Angeles. Now designated as a Los Angeles Cultural Monument, this building is being brought back to life in a dramatic way. We will hear about the exciting development from the architects, including how the 3D BIM model was generated of a million+ square foot property, and experience an exclusive hands-on workshop for window restoration and terra cotta repair followed by a tour. Reception immediately to follow. This a unique opportunity to witness a Beaux Arts era building being restored to its former grandeur.

Sponsored by Spectra, Chattel, Omgivning, 

Mollenhauer and Waterbridge Capital.
