Traditional Building Conference Series
July 18 - July 19$94 - $260
After the Revolutionary War, Salem’s unique geography and enterprising citizens established the city as one of the most prosperous sea ports in the Americas. Salem’s pepper and cod fish trades created the wealth to build grand classical buildings. For admirers of traditional architecture, The Salem Athenaeum, Hamilton Hall, The House of Seven Gables and many other significant colonial landmarks constitute our living laboratory. The Traditional Building Conference in Salem features expert-led architecture walking tours which will augment our seminars. Attendees learn best practices for historic restoration and renovation in the field and in the classroom.
The Traditional Building Conference Series (TBCS) delivers focused, relevant education for architects, contractors, craftspeople, designers, building owners and facilities managers in a time-efficient format at beautiful historic venues. TBCS is a registered provider of AIA continuing education credits. Credits for NARI, AIBD, and some NAHB certifications are available. TBCS’s application to provide Massachusetts construction supervisor licensing CEUs is pending.
