Please join WCAPT and AIA Central Valley for a special tour of the recently renovated Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building in Sacramento.
Many technical challenges needed to be overcome: the removal of earlier, more invasive mechanical systems to install a modern energy-efficient system; working around previously installed structure while protecting and restoring original historical elements of the building; insertion of an unobtrusive accessibilty route; and special attention to the fire suppression system, which uses a state-of-the-art high-fog mist instead of a typical deluge system to accommodate the continuing dual use of a library and a court.
The final result is a fully functional energy-efficient building with restored light wells and newly conserved historical and decorative elements supported by modern and discrete mechanical systems.
Four Learning Objectives to be achieved during the course of this tour include:
Professionals involved in the renovation conducting the tour:
Nancy Goldenberg, AIA, Principal, Carey and Company
Pella McCormick, California Department of General Services
Sean deCourcy, Historian, Office of Historic Preservation
Gary Kurutz, Principal Librarian Emeritus, Special Collections
Registration is limited to 35 participants, so register early for this popular tour.
For reasonable accommodations or alternate formats, please contact AIA Central Valley at least 72 hours prior to the event or for more information firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-444-3658.
