Developers and communities are seeking to re-use older structures, so the demand for heritage retrofit carpenters is high. In this program, you will learn the construction techniques that were used centuries ago and replicate them by combining traditional skills with the latest technology.
You’ll help preserve historic properties by upgrading and restoring them to structural standards and energy efficiency without compromising their character, aesthetic, or charm. Courses taken in this program include timber frame carpentry, restoration and renovation, finishing, energy efficiency, and architectural history.
