School Renovation and the Importance of Maintenance [Interview with Charles Boney, Jr.]

Web Abstract: 
Architect Charles Boney offers his views on school districts building schools that have to be replaced too soon, general problems concerning renovation of older buildings, and keeping maintenance costs down. He discusses flooring materials, the types of operating costs that are negatively impacted by lower installation costs; and roofing systems. Concluding discussions address excessive use of windows and the heating and air conditioning problems they can cause, and renovation materials he considers to be long lasting and characteristically have low maintenance costs.
