This interactive web class introduces the Secretary of the Interior's
Standards for Rehabilitation to anyone who is thinking about rehabilitating
a historic building--property owners, architects, engineers, contractors,
developers, members of historic district commissions, and maintenance
personnel and other caretakers of historic buildings. Learn what the Standards
for Rehabilitation are, who uses them, how they're applied, what to do
before you start work, and the DOs and DON'Ts of rehabilitation. Each
Standard is explained with illustrated examples of project work. To test
your understanding of the Standards, Electronic Rehab features a follow
up quiz on the rehabilitation of two historic buildings--one commercial
and one residential. You make work decisions using the Standards and get
immediate feedback on how you did.
