Restoration and Preservation on Capitol Hill: Networking, Presentation by the Architect of the Capitol, and Engineers' Club Annual Meeting - June 19

The Engineers’ Club of Philadelphia, the American Institute of Architects, Philadelphia Section, and Construction Management Association of America, Mid-Atlantic Chapter are pleased to jointly sponsor an evening with Stephen T. Ayers, FAIA, LEED AP, Architect of the Capitol.

As the stewards and caretakers of the iconic buildings of Capitol Hill, the Architect of the Capitol (AOC) is responsible for maintaining and preserving the seat of American democracy. Mr. Ayers will provide an engaging and informative presentation where participants will learn what it takes to keep this “city within a city” operating efficiently and effectively.

The AOC’s roles and responsibilities will be explored and an overview of ongoing preservation and restoration initiatives will be discussed. Current and recently completed projects will be described, including the Dome Restoration project, the Capitol Visitor Center and the Supreme Court Modernization project.

The need for strong leadership by engineers and architects in the public sector will be discussed and lessons learned from the political battlefield at the AOC will be revealed. New and innovative ways of prioritizing work requirements will be reviewed and explored.

This event is anticipated to qualify for 1 PDH and 1 AIA/CES CEH (pending).
