This course focuses on the planning and development of installations as it pertains to the sustainable/resilient reuse of historic structures and landscapes. The appropriate management and consideration of historic resources is required per public law (National Defense Authorization Acts of 2013 and 2014) and DoD UFC 2-100-01, Installation Master Planning. Further, with DoD and Army focus on footprint reduction and reuse, smart repurposing of these historic structures and landscapes are essential. This course instructs planners, historic preservation experts, and others on the appropriate implementation of the UFC 2-100-01 planning strategy that addresses natural, cultural, and historic resource management. The course also provides instruction in identifying unique characteristics, legal requirements, procedures, technical knowledge, and skills necessary to administer, maintain, repair, and repurpose historic properties in conjunction with the master planning policies of the Army and DoD

The course begins with an overview of installation master planning and describes how consideration of the appropriate use of historic structures should be included in the planning process. The course then covers sustainability and resiliency and reuse strategies for historic structures as these applicable at the scale of master planning. The course also provides an overview of relevant guidance to include laws and regulations, as well as Secretary of the Interior standards, criteria, and guidance. The course also covers the identification and documentation of historic landscapes, which includes buildings and open spaces. Students will be engaged in lecture, carefully crafted hands-on exercises, and field visits to examples of successful historic preservation and sustainable reuse. In addition, through the use of multiple case studies, students will learn how to use innovative methods in order to reuse historic structures since these structures offer unique ways to meet energy and water saving goals and create new opportunities for footprint reduction.

This course has no prerequisite. It is appropriate for planners, architects, landscape architects, project managers, engineers, historic preservation experts, resource managers, and Real Property Specialists working at Army and DoD installations, Corps of Engineers districts, NASA centers, other federal agencies, the general public, and the consulting community.
