Historic places around the globe are increasingly being impacted by flooding and rising sea levels caused by climate change. As a result, preservation professionals are being asked by historic building owners/stewards for technical guidance to protect a wide range of historic buildings dealing with an even wider range of environmental circumstances. This symposium follows a case study format to illustrate a number of “hardening” interventions at the building level, but also at the landscape level. Each case study will discuss the project’s historic and environmental context, the technical intervention, an assessment of the success, and most importantly lessons learned. At the end of the morning session, participants will understand how increased instances of flooding/sea level change are impacting historic buildings; understand current code and regulations relating to flood design; be able to discuss advantages and disadvantages of a variety of approaches and be able to assess technical treatment alternatives to best meet preservation and resiliency goals. The afternoon will include a walking tour that highlights local flood control efforts followed by an interactive discussion with the entire panel and the audience discussing how APT can help NCPTT and the larger preservation community by developing technical guidance for protecting historic buildings against rising waters.
