From Michael Scott, Assoc. AIA:
Tour of Kreysler & Associates Facility
FRP, An Alternate Material for
Restoration, Replication And Strengthening
Friday, 22 September 2005
2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
American Canyon, California
The tour is intended for Architects, Contractors, Preservationists, Historians, Specification Writers and anyone else associated with the replication and reconstruction of architectural elements of historic buildings.
Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) has become a recognized and accepted method of replicating and/or reconstructing historic masonry, sheet metal, or plaster assemblies. Proper specification and detailing are critical to successful use of the material. Bill Kreysler of Kreysler & Associates will discuss FRP and lead a tour of K&A fabricating facility. K&A has an established track record of using FRP on historic projects including the Flood Building, Ferry Building, and over 15 other landmark or historic buildings in the bay area alone. The tour and presentation will also touch upon K&A’s sculptural and digital fabrication work.
