School Renovation and the Importance of Maintenance. [Interview with Charles Boney, Jr.].
Butterfield, Eric
Charles Boney, Jr., Director of Boney Architects, offers his views on school districts that build schools that have to be replaced too soon, general problems concerning renovation of older buildings, and keeping maintenance costs down. He discusses the types of flooring materials school districts should consider using to lower maintenance costs and increase longevity; the types of operating costs that are negatively impacted by lower installation costs; the types of roofing systems he designs for schools, including roofing that has good acoustical qualities. Concluding discussions address excessive use of windows and the heating and air conditioning problems that they can cause and how he solves these, and renovation materials he considers to be long lasting and characteristically have low maintenance costs.
