    SOLAR HOUSES SHINE

    In a dramatic demonstration of design with solar energy, 14 North American universities recently competed in a Solar Decathlon in Washington, D.C. The students were tasked with designing and building solar-powered houses that would blend aesthetics and modern conveniences with maximum energy efficiency. The overarching goal of the competition was to illustrate the benefits of solar energy for a wide audience. — Published 2002.1016

    NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION

    Comprehensive planning and budgeting for a historic preservation project cannot commence without a detailed survey of a building's existing conditions. Information gathered during the documentation search forms the basis but cannot supplant the need for field inspection.

    Those who plan to conduct the field investigation should first understand the existing construction. The original drawings, specifications, and historic research provide important information, but they may be inaccurate due to changes—both during the initial construction and in later modifications. — Published 2001.0110
