Price: $39.00

 

SUCCESSFUL RENOVATIONS AND ADDITIONS


This course is designed to address the needs of both designers and builders. The topics that will be covered include pre-design, building design, structural concerns, making a watertight envelope, code issues, and construction details. Each of these topics will be addressed in the light of both renovation and addition projects. Real-life stories will relay information that will help any designer to successfully navigate through the challenges of this very specific type of building design.

This course will highlight the right questions, demonstrate how to investigate the important conditions and bring attention to the critical issues. Through the many following examples, this course will offer instruction on how to approach a renovation or addition project with justified confidence.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Be able to translate the requests of the client into a realistic, safe, and cost-effective project.
