Historic Preservation Podcast
Historic 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".
