dc.description.abstractThe U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is located in Kings Point, New York. The Academy is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (#14000538). The historic district contains contributing mansions constructed during the Gold Coast Era and the Academy buildings constructed in 1942 to 1969. All buildings require regular planned maintenance and repair. The most notable cause of historic building element failure and/or decay is not the fact the historic building is old, but rather it is caused by an incorrect or inappropriate repair and/or basic neglect of the historic building fabric. This document is a maintenance manual compiled with as-is conditions of building materials at the Academy. The Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties on Preservation, Rehabilitation, and Repair are discussed per material. This 8-volume report includes an overview volume plus volumes on each of the following elements: concrete, wood, brick, metal, roofing, stucco, and mechanical systems. All mentioned repair procedures are from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA): Historic Preservation Technical Procedures and/or the National Park Service’s series of Preservation Briefs. This report satisfies Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, as amended.en_US
