Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans offers LCIA Policyholders Discount at Renovators’ Happy Hour
6/4/2015 10:03:03 AM

Next Thursday, June 11, the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans (PRC) will host the latest installment in its Renovators’ Happy Hour series. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the renovation progress of a 1910 four-story private residence that is currently being restored with the assistance of historic rehabilitation tax credits.

For those businesses in the construction or design industries—especially those who work on historical properties—PRC’s happy hours are a unique opportunity to learn from and connect with others in the field. The renovator will give a presentation, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the renovator, as well as the contractor and subs working on the project. You can also learn how to qualify for historical rehabilitation tax credits.

Light refreshments available, including "remodeled” classic cocktails from Luca Bols USA. For more information visit www.prcno.org or contact Suzanne Blaum at sblaum@prcno.org.
