Lehrer Discusses Biggest Challenge in Future-Proofing Buildings

What are the obstacles in future-proofing yesterday’s buildings for tomorrow’s end users?

The biggest challenge to future-proofing infrastructure in older buildings is satisfying both programming and budgetary goals, according to ESD Senior Vice President Andrew Lehrer, speaking recently at Bisnow’s Chicago Repositioning and Adaptive Reuse event in front of more than 200 people. He noted that ESD works with its clients to leverage as much of a building’s existing infrastructure as possible, centralizing spaces to create an open, cohesive experience with multiple uses.
