Virtual Summit: Renew Reuse Regrow, Approaches to Preservation & Adaptive Reuse, December 6
Event Description

A simple and responsible way to rethink how and what we build is through adaptive reuse and the recycling of existing materials. Working with historic buildings, utilizing green technologies, and creating new circular economies and material reuse systems are techniques at the forefront of sustainable design today, and the focus of our Renew Reuse Regrow Virtual Summit.

Renewable building materials like timber have already begun to reshape how we think about building cities and making new architecture. These material processes are not only ecologically sensitive, but they create opportunities for economic growth, promote equity, and support heritage conservation. Underutilized and abandoned historic structures offer an unexpected area for the AEC industry to lead: Because extant buildings require upgrades to meet new performance codes, like mitigating thermal bridging, replacing outdated mechanical systems, and repairing decayed facades, their revitalization presents a massive opportunity.

The Architect's Newspaper's Renew Reuse Regrow event features today's most exciting case studies from historic preservation, adaptive reuse, and asset renewal for deep green retrofits, but there is also a unique focus on continuing innovation with mass timber. Panels ranging from mass timber's exciting new heights to the material's support of net-zero carbon goals showcase exemplary projects across North America, identify best practices for their assembly, and spotlight emerging technologies for practitioners interested in gaining experience in this exciting field.

You won't want to miss this opportunity to join the discourse on what's next for a more beautiful, responsible, and successful future for our industry.
