Carl Baumert participates in Preservation Month Speaker Series
Senior Consultant, Carl Baumert, Jr., PE, will participate in the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia’s Preservation Month Speaker Series. Baumert and Vitetta architect Nan Gutterman, AIA, will showcase their firms’ collaborative work to conserve the monumental marble sculptures on Philadelphia City Hall. Their work on the 250+ Alexander Milne Calder-designed sculptures is one aspect of the ongoing multi-phase exterior renovation of the building. The conservation of these sculptures is a critical component of the overall exterior envelope restoration project. Gutterman and Baumert will discuss the need for the project’s conservation efforts to balance life-safety and conservation concerns. Their presentation will be held Tuesday, May 20th from 5:30-7:00 pm at the AIA Center for Architecture (1218 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA). For information, visit www.preservationalliance.com.
