The Challenge of Modernization

by Les Shepherd

University of Houston, Student Center

Gone are the days when new construction was held to a higher standard than renovation. Fully modernized buildings are now expected to rival or surpass new construction in energy performance, functionality, and comfort. Meeting this challenge requires the architect and the entire team to go on a journey of exploration within an existing building. They must be part detective, part historian, part diplomat, soothsayers, and master communicators – all closely collaborating with one another to realize the full potential of the building renovation while fully respecting the spirit and intent of the original designers. A modernization project today challenges not only the architect but the entire design team in a way that no other project does.

It’s critical to design buildings with the flexibility and adaptability to manage change – from evolving program, technology, and organizational goals to the challenges of dwindling resources and climate change.
