Noon – 1 p.m. EDT
Online Event

Attendees of the 2017 Preserving Historic Places Conference enjoyed a “before” tour of the long-vacant upper floors of Wabash’s Eagles Theatre owned by the Honeywell Foundation. Recently, a dedicated team of architects, engineers, and contractors transformed the underused space into music rooms, recording studios, and a grand ballroom. Experts from R.E. Dimond and Associates, a mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and technology consulting engineering firm; and krM Architecture take us behind the curtain to reveal their creative approach to critical, but often invisible, mechanical systems that make the spaces function.

This free virtual event is hosted by Preserving Historic Places, Indiana’s Statewide Preservation Conference — a partnership of Indiana Landmarks, Indiana Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology, and Indiana University.
