Historic Preservation PodcastHistoric preservation and restoration of old buildings pose many challenges for civil engineers in terms of making the building safe and fully functional without interfering with its original construction or disturbing its historic look. In the following podcast, Donald Friedman highlights a case study of restoration work on the facade and cornice of a building built in the early twentieth century. The building is located in Manhattan, New York City. Donald Friedman, PE, is principal at Old Structures Engineering, PC and is also the author of "Historical Building Construction; Design, Material and Technology".
