Collaboration Key to Church Repairs

July 12, 2012
Ann Coleman, WJE associate principal and manager of the firm's Boston office, will present a paper at The Association for Preservation Technology International (APT) annual Conference in Charleston, South Carolina, taking place September 30-October 4, 2012.

When construction related activities on a nearby subway system damaged the facade of Boston's historic Old South Church, all parties involved collaborated to quickly restore the exterior and interior of the church without litigation or a contentious battle. Ms. Coleman will be sharing how collaboration was at the heart of the matter in this important restoration.

APT Charleston 2012 is the 44th annual convention hosted by APT, a cross-disciplinary, membership organization dedicated to promoting the best technology for conserving historic structures and their settings.
