WELCOME TO THE NEW APT WGLC WEBSITE!
We are pleased to announce our chapter's collaboration with the Association for Preservation Technology International (APTI) to facilitate knowledge sharing and resources between chapters and APTI. With this partnership, this website will ultimately be used as a tool to streamline sharing industry and APTI news and events.
APT WGLC will continue to develop and improve this site so it can be as useful as possible to our members and friends. Please stand-by as we continue to import information, including photos from past events, and develop our members-only access.
2018 Student Design Build Competition
The Association for Preservation Technology (APT) Preservation Engineering Technical Committee (PETC) is proud to kick off the 2018 Student Design Build Competition to be held at the 2018 conference in Buffalo, New York! The 2018 competition will be focused on the Timber Bridge designed historically between 1840 to 1890.
The specification document for the 2018 competition can be accessed by clicking here. Please take note of information and dates contained within the document as they are critical to the competition. Similar to the previous competition years, the competition process is separated into three (3) phases. The first phase requires team submissions by February 2, 2018. No extensions will be made for this phase to ensure fairness to all teams.
As always, if you have any questions on the specifications please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to seeing your team submissions! We would love to see a team from the Western Great Lakes Chapter represent at the 50th Anniversary National Conference this year in Buffalo, New York!
