How far will we go for preservation?

2014-12-19 Posted By: Patty Weaver

To the border and beyond! Well, almost to the border. Todd Renyer and Ian Pitts, both of Treanor Preservation, and Matt Murphy, Treanor Civil, traveled to southwestern Texas this week. The trip was centered around completing condition assessments of Texas Parks & Wildlife facilities at Balmorhea State Park and Black Gap Wildlife Management Area.

Shoptalk: Window

2014-10-31 Posted By: Patty Weaver

Shoptalk—deciphering architectural and historic preservation jargon one word at a time!

Term:
window

Definition:
an opening in an external wall of a building to admit light and (usually) air; typically glazed

Examples:Yes, you know what a window is, but did you know that most historic buildings feature many different windows types?  There are double-hung windows, fixed windows, awning windows, hopper windows, and casement windows to name a few. There are also many different types of glazing patterns, styles and window components such as the sill, sash, head, casing and jamb. Windows, and all their components significantly contribute to the unique character of a building. That’s why each window restoration project should begin with a thorough window survey to identify window types, original construction and existing conditions.

Kansas Statehouse Recognized at 2014 AIA CSR Design Awards

2014-10-27 Posted By: Patty Weaver

Treanor Architects’ Kansas Statehouse preservation and restoration project was recognized at the AIA Central States Design Awards with the 2014 Architecture Preservation Honor Award.

The jurors were quoted in the awards program as saying: “The transformation shown is extraordinary and reflective not just of restoring, but of having to undo an earlier renovation that departed substantially from the original intent of the building. The vast change shown is incredible.”

Congratulations to the State of Kansas and all those who worked on the project!
