    2017 Mid-Atlantic Wood Solutions FairAnn Neeriemer AIA, LEED AP August 29, 2017, Washington, DC

    The new 11,266-sf gymnasium at the Washington Latin Public Charter School marks an exciting new approach to school design. The first cross-laminated timber (CLT) building in the region, it demonstrates how mass timber can be used to cost-effectively create extraordinary spaces that support student well-being. This presentation by the project architect will include details on the structure, which features both CLT and glulam, as well as lessons learned during design and construction. Topics will include why mass timber was chosen, design challenges and solutions, building official interaction and approval process, and logistical coordination.

  • Maintaining: Points of Departure

    Urban Design ForumJonathan Cohn AIA, LEED AP September 6, 2017, New York, NY

    The New York City subway is the most expansive and heavily used underground transit system in the United States. Ensuring the stations that anchor this critical public asset remain in a state of good repair is an enormous undertaking. Is there room for private capital and philanthropic giving to maintain stations in the long term, and enhance them to become valuable additions to the City’s public realm? Does every station have the potential to become a commercial or cultural destination? Join Tim Braine, Jonathan Cohn, John Falcocchio, Susan Fine and Eve Michel as they propose new solutions to care for New York City’s 472 subway stations.

  • Best Practices for Interior Finish and Furnishing Specification in K12 Educational Environments

    NeoCon EastKaren Gioconda NCIDQ, LEED AP ID+C; Katie Herber LEED AP ID+C, ND, EDAC; and Heather Jauregui LEED AP BD+C, O+M, CPHC November 16, 2017, Philadelphia, PA

    K-12 Schools are at the heart of every community and serve an incredibly important population – our children. The exterior architecture of these civic buildings is carefully considered. However, students most frequently interact directly with the interior environment. Interior finishes and furnishings are often specified in the later stages of the design process and are the first items to be value-engineered. Material health is critical to the success of a K-12 learning environment. This seminar will describe the impact that material health of interior finishes and furniture has on students, identify best practices related to the interior specifications and provide suggestions on how to educate team members about the importance and prioritization of material health. A case study will be presented to connect how best practices can help schools achieve their goals for students and their facilities.
