2017 APTCP Social Event, Tours, and Annual Meeting

Posted by Sarah Holder, Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 @ 1:33pm

  • In July 2017, APTCP held its annual meeting and social in Des Moines, IA. This was a first for APTCP and we were thrilled to visit the great state of Iowa!

    We started the day with a tour of the American Enterprise Group's Headquarters. The building was designed by Gordon Bunshaft with SOM and completed in 1964. Recent renovations were completed by the architecture firm BNIM and the General Contractor Ryan Companies, Baker Group and Baker Electric, and Design Engineers. We were pleased to see this DoCoMoMo award winning project.

    Our final stop of the day was to get a tour of the in-progress renovation of the historic Des Moines City Hall. Attendess were in awe of the decorative finishes and plaster throughout this stunning building.  

    We wrapped the day with dinner and drinks at Magnolia Wine Kitchen in the Western Gateway section of Des Moines.

  • 2014_10-26 – Conference: APT International - Quebec City, Canada

    Several APTCP members attended the annual APT Conference in Quebec City, Canada this past fall. The conference was held at the historic landmark Hotel Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. Our members enjoyed excellent Paper Sessions, Field Sessions, Workshops and comradery with fellow preservationists from around the world!

    Some of our members attended a great Workshop titled: Documentation Data - The Platform for Condition Analysis and the Basis for Preservation Project Planning. The attendees learned of successful rehabilitation techniques using latest technologies with demonstrations of the current tools being used for survey and NDI (Non-Destructive Investigation). The tools of MBS (Measured Building Survey) and NDI form the foundation for evaluation and development of important existing structures.

    Several members also attended The National Slate Association tour of the Glendyne Inc. Slate Quarry. The tour featured the quarry and production facilities of Glendyne Inc., a major North American producer of roofing, structural, landscaping and industrial mineral slate products.
