Examining Building Conversions – Two Case Studies Webinar
Recorded On: 11/07/2023
Understanding the basic concepts behind building conversions is critically important for development professionals, city officials and local communities. Each potential property needs to be evaluated on its own merits to determine the probability of success and whether the location, costs, timing, and existing building layout make sense for a conversion. Join WDG Managing Principals Siti Abdul-Rahman, AIA, and Robyn Jacobson, AIA, as they discuss two recent conversions and address the challenges and opportunities in each unique project.
