Since 1847, the Kellum-Noble House has stood near Buffalo Bayou, dwarfed in more recent years by the nearby skyscrapers that have come to define the city of Houston. The oldest remaining building in the city is now undergoing critical foundation repair work that will allow it to remain a resource for years to come.

With extensive monitoring and planning beginning in 2001, Sparks Engineering has designed a solution that will ensure the house remains sound in Houston's soil.

For this Building Arts Lecture, Patrick Sparks, founder and principal of Sparks Engineering, will talk about the development and design of the project, including the preservation challenges involved with the treatment of a 168-year-old masonry building.
