2012 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

HINMAN RESEARCH BUILDING
Atlanta, Fulton County

This incredible mid-century building on the Georgia Tech campus was in need of serious restoration and rehabilitation in order to better serve students in Tech's College of Architecture. The project began by thoroughly documenting the structure with Revit. Following that, concrete conditions were tested and repaired, and steel windows were repaired in place with new insulated glazing to significantly cut down on heat transfer through the panes. The dramatic open interior was reconceived to accommodate the College of Architecture's needs on a restricted budget while retaining historic materials. This building should serve as an inspiration for budding architects for many years to come.
