Extreme Makeovers: Dealing with the Realities of Existing Building Renovations

The decision to renovate or build new can have long-term consequences for institutions. Renovation might be less expensive, faster, or involve historic or sentimental buildings. However, existing space may also be inefficient, outdated and unable to serve current teaching methods without compromises. This session, presented at EDspaces 2017 in Kansas City, explores factors to be considered when making the decision to keep, extensively modify, or demolish and build new, using examples from both the K-12 public school and university levels.
