This article focuses on five specific challenges commonly faced during renovation projects: 1) updating the physical security provided at interior door openings, 2) incorporating more power, communications, and A/V access points, 3) increasing the presence of daylight in the interior, 4) using a less absorbent limestone to replace existing limestone or add new limestone accents to a façade, and 5) specifying the narrow sightlines necessary to replicate historic windows, while providing modern day structural, thermal, and acoustic performance.
