Materials and Methods
Boston – April 28-29, 2015
The third annual Traditional Building Windows Conference is produced in collaboration with the National Park Service.
Windows are an important character defining feature of buildings. But, when they suffer from neglect and lack of maintenance, they present significant challenges for rehabilitation including cost, detailing, and return on investment. For additions to historic buildings or new construction, getting the details right is critically important for achieving the right look and long-term durability.
We will examine wood, steel, aluminum, and bronze and the preservation or replication of these 20th-century materials. Window work, from restoration of old windows to the design and installation of new windows, generates jobs and serves as an important economic engine.
Join us for two days of demonstrations, discussions and direction about working with windows – historic, old and new, traditional, and mid-century modern.
The Historic Theater District, Marriott Downtown, 275 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02116
