Upcoming Training Workshop

Crash Course in Historic Buildings & Restoration

CPI member: $40 | Nonmember: $55
Virtual online event

CPI staff will cross-check your membership status to ensure dues are current and may follow-up if they are not.

Trainees are responsible for securing and paying for travel, lodging, and meals while attending. Refunds will be available for up to one week before the workshop, after which point, no refunds will be given.


Learn how/where to start on the successful path to a restoration or construction project for a historic building. During this virtual event, join Graham Johnson with Spectrum General Contractors and Andy Duckett-Emke, Project Architect with Anderson Hallas Architects, as they take you on a crash course of historic building projects. 

The workshop is designed for homeowners and commercial property owners looking for more guidance into the preservation-related challenges for historic construction projects.

We will take a high-level dive into the collaborative preservation project at Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church in Denver, working specifically through relevant topics to incorporate a productive planning/design phase in your project to minimize surprises that can otherwise become construction road bumps. Specific focus will also be given to navigating the entitlement process in permitting (building, zoning, utilities), landmark, CLG review, and State Historic Grant Funding (SHF). Managing these aspects of a project early can set a course for success and avoid timely and costly delays down the road.

Featured Project

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

The 2017 update, Preservation for a Changing Colorado, resulted from a partnership between Colorado Preservation and History Colorado and Colorado Preservation, Inc. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report and accompanying website document the economic benefits of rehabilitation projects, analyzes property values and neighborhood stability in local historic districts, and summarizes the increasing impact of heritage tourism, private preservation development and the success of Colorado’s Main Street program. In a key finding, researchers found that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado leads to $1.03 million in additional spending, 14 new jobs, and $636,700 in increased household incomes across the state! The 2017 report also considers the important role preservation plays in helping Coloradans provide new spaces for creative communities and co-working, create and sustain meaningful places, respond to the state’s changing demographics, and address climate concerns.
