Learn how to plan for building reuse
Please join us Nov. 8 as the Rural Center and the Construction Professionals Network Institute offer a workshop to help local leaders envision ways to renovate and revitalize vacant buildings.
Professionals from CPNI, a statewide organization of leaders in the design and construction industries, will lead the daylong workshop, which will be held at the Rural Center in Raleigh. This workshop is a repeat of one offered in the spring, which sold out quickly and garnered excellent reviews.
Among the topics to be covered are the environmental, condition and cost assessments that make a project work, along with the financial, permitting and marketing issues that will arise.
The registration fee of $15, payable at the door, includes lunch. Space is limited, and reservations are required. To reserve your spot, please email Courtney Tieman, email@example.com or call 919-250-4314.
