This week’s episode features an insightful conversation with Jacqui Hogans.  I learned a number of interesting things throughout this episode. Things I’d never thought of – like how salty is fog. And how does that salt impact building materials. This conversation was a good time and helped me understand more about the policy and façade inspections in place to help keep us safe as we’re walking around cities.

Bio: Jacqui Hogans, AIA, RIBA, CSI , with nearly 20 years of experience in historic restoration and building envelope space, Jacqui Hogans knows facades. She cut her teeth working in New York City, on projects ranging from the Guggenheim Museum and the American Museum of Natural History to inspection and repair of numerous office buildings and high-rise residential buildings. A decade ago, Jacqui headed West to San Francisco, where she now serves as a Project Manager at McGinnis Chen Associates (MCA), consulting on remedial and historic repair programs in addition to consulting on new construction projects.

Jacqui managed the mosaic restoration of Oakland’s storied Paramount Theatre, which won several awards, including the Governor’s Historic Preservation Award and the California Preservation Design Award. Jacqui manages and designs historic preservation projects and remedial façade repair projects, leading a team of architects, engineers, and technical staff she has affectionately dubbed the “Façade Squad.” She also directs the inspection of historic buildings as part of San Francisco’s new Façade Inspection and Maintenance Ordinance, if that wasn’t enough, she heads up MCA’s East Coast presence from her new home base in the New York City area. She has a special interest in historic brick and stone, and shares her love of masonry each Monday on LinkedIn.

Jacqui is a Registered Architect in both California and New York State, and holds a Master of Science in Historic Preservation from Columbia University. She earned her BA in Architectural Studies from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. When she’s not hanging off buildings, Jacqui enjoys running (she’s run 3 marathons!), indoor cycling, reading about historic architecture, traveling (usually to places with stunning historic architecture), and spending time with her family.
