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.

    This 30 minute documentary addresses the significance of structures from the modern-era, points out the common failures they are facing, and provides an overview why this preservation solution was appropriate for this building and how it might be appropriate for other buildings of this type.  GSA inventory includes approximately 600 modern-era buildings across the nation.  The A.J. Celebrezze Federal Building, in downtown Cleveland, recently completed construction on a fa├žade over-cladding project that preserved much of the buildings original design integrity.  This film focuses on the unique double wall solution as a "preservation" approach to renewing the viability of the historic property and extending its functional use well into the future.
