AIA/AIAS Fall Tour of UVA Hospital Expansion

On Tuesday, December 5th, we will be hosting a tour of the UHE for the local AIA and AIAS Chapters!

 

The tour will commence at the jobsite trailer with an introduction to the project and team followed by Stretch and Flex and a “Hard Hat” tour.  The onsite portion of the tour will start with a view of the project from the top of the Lee Street parking garage followed by a tour of the site.  We also hope to provide a short presentation on how we are using VR during CA.

 

Parking on site is EXTREMELY limited and the gravel lot at the job site trailer is reserved for Skanska, Perkins+Will and UVA’s employees. It is therefore recommended that tour participants carpool or take public transportation. The Lee Street and 11th street parking garages are located across the street from the job site trailer.

 

Tour groups will be limited to 20 or less. More than that and we will have a hard time communicating with the group. We also want to limit the tour group size for safety.  We can break up larger groups into separate groups of 20, if needed.

 

In order to participate in the tour, the following PPE is required:

 

ANSI approved hard hat

Gloves – Cut level 3

Safety Toed Work boots that cover ankle at a minimum

ANSI approved Safety glasses (eyeglasses do not count)

ANSI high visibility clothing/vest

               Long pants

 

Skanska will have extra hard hats, gloves, glasses, OSHA toes(slip-on safety toes) and vests on site to loan to participants who do not have their own.

 

Looking forward to it!

UVA DIRECTOR OF HISTORIC PRESERVATION PROGRAM: ANDY JOHNSTON

http://www.arch.virginia.edu/events/uva-director-historic-preservation-program-andy-johnston

Andrew Johnston, Ph.D. has been appointed Associate Professor and Director of the UVA School of Architecture’s Historic Preservation program.  The appointment to the Department of Architectural History, with a three year courtesy appointment to the Department of Architecture, was effective December 15, 2015.

Johnston’s research interests focus on industrial and infrastructure heritage, cultural landscapes, and, specifically, heritage and preservation in China.    He was the founding program director of both the Master of Architecture and the Interdisciplinary MSc in Urban Design, an English language, Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) - accredited program at Xian-Jiaotong Liverpool University (XJTLU) in Suzhou, China, where he also held the Heritage, History and Theory Research Initiative Chair.  He has worked extensively on the promotion of multidisciplinary research sharing, and interdisciplinary programs at XJTLU, and as the Suzhou Institute of Architectural Design’s Consulting Architect in Heritage Preservation.   In the United States, he has been an environmental planner for the California Department of Transportation and the Supervisory Architect for the U.S. National Park Service’s Historic American Engineering Record.

Johnston holds a Ph.D. and Masters of Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley and a Master of Science in Urban Design from the Pratt Institute.  He is a licensed architect with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and a certified planner with the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP). His most recent publication, Mercury and the Making of California: Mining, Landscape and Race, 1845-1900, is a multidisciplinary examination of the history and cultural landscapes of California's mercury-mining industry, which raises mercury to its rightful place alongside gold and silver in the development of the American West.
