March Webinar: Adaptive Re-use – How Do You Reimagine … Reposition… Optimize Your Campus’ Existing Assets

When: March 11th, 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Where: Watch On-Demand!

Webinar Description:

With diminished budgets and changing needs, “Adaptive Reuse” is rapidly becoming the necessary pathway on our campuses.  “Remote” learning and working conditions will, to some degree, partially remain as a way of life and cause growth of hybrid and distance learning models, and preparation for future health events.  Today’s campuses may have spaces that are unoccupied, underutilized, not optimal for overall health and wellness, or simply may need updating to provide the learning/living environments of the future.

In a virtual, yet highly active, learning environment you will be guided through an Architectural Adaptive Re-use process using a virtual planning tool.  This interactive exercise can be adapted and utilized on your campus to assist you in different ways of reimagining your underutilized spaces. 

Learning Objectives:

1 – Provide an adaptable “take-away” checklist that walks you through your planning process.
2 – Streamline your thinking to help you in determining possible solutions for your campus.
3 – Participate in a collaborative environment to gain input and understanding from your peers.
