Historic Preservation: How One Public Agency Developed a Comprehensive Preservation Planning Strategy
Tuesday, December 5, 2023 | 2pm ET
Since its establishment in 1901, the National Bureau of Standards (NIST) has been committed to setting standards worldwide. In addition, NIST is a proud steward of scores of historically important research laboratories, facilities, and architecturally significant structures and landscapes. Historic preservation has become an integral component of the planning, design, operations and maintenance activities across all of its campuses nationwide. NIST’s Master Plan, which facilitates this preservation, has been the recipient of both local and national awards. This session will discuss NIST’s exemplary federal agency leadership in preservation practice.
Hosted by the Public Architects (PA) Committee.
