    About the Event

    USGBC Texas South Region is hosting at tour of a historic home in the King William Neighborhood.

    The house at the corner of King William and Turner was built in 1863 and was added on several time before the house was subdivided to have 6 separate apartments. The house fell into disrepair and remained abandoned for many years. It was bought in 2013 and the new owner, Juan Fernandez, wanted to restore the house to it’s former glory. While beginning restoration, a neighbor brought over an old photo that showed a grand entry porch with 4 columns that had long been removed. Rebuilding the entry was added to the construction plans. The old add-on’s were removed and a new kitchen wing was built. All renovations were built to meet LEED Standards and the home achieved LEED Silver Certification.

    The tour will include “before” photos to compare to the restored areas, as well as a review of the LEED Checklist for the project and how Historic Preservation and LEED can be achieved simultaneously. 

    LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green certification program for building design, construction, operations and maintenance - and the most widely used green building rating system in the world. This building rating system, and LEED certifications for industry professionals, are both administered by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). This event is hosted by the USGBC South Texas Region. Visit the USGBC Texas Chapter's website: http://usgbctexas.org

    Topping Out is a DFW Metroplex annual networking event and awards programs in the Architecture / Engineering / Construction (A/E/C) and allied fields.Topping Out started in 2003,  by then HKS Architects’ Chairman Ralph Hawkins and William Vidaud, Principal of VAI Architects. This friendly competition was designed to recognize, strengthen, and award the teamwork aspect of the multi-million dollar projects that transform our cities and our lives, one building at a time.

    Today, Topping Out continues its dedication in supporting charitable based education programs at the local level which foster the development of our future leaders. Proceeds from Topping Out benefit the UT Arlington Alumni Association for scholarships and educational programs. In addition, the Architecture Chapter of the UT Arlington Alumni Association continues its commitment to the growth of Topping Out by overseeing the committee, providing administrative support, and managing the Topping Out brand.

    Topping Out is unlike any other A/E/C Industry award event because:

    • It honors the entire construction team by celebrating the building team’s ability to confront tough issues and work together toward a successful project completion.

    • It provides a unique networking opportunity with peers from all disciplines.

    • It provides the opportunity to give back to education and the A/E/C community with a tax-deductible contribution.

    You can visit the Topping Out website for registration details here.
