Successful Approaches to Driving Deep Energy Savings and Getting to Net Zero Energy with Historic and Existing Buildings

Over the past 20 years, sustainable preservation has gone from a controversial concept to a mainstream approach to making historic buildings exemplars of sustainability and adaptive reuse. Numerous projects have demonstrated how to integrate sustainable technologies and strategies, while maintaining sensitivity or even restoring the original sustainable features of historic buildings. This workshop will explore examples of successful sustainable preservation projects and provide a practical step-by-step process to planning and executing sustainable preservation projects that reduce impacts on the environment and provide a new life for some of the best and most important buildings in our community.

This workshop is followed by Annual Historic Preservation Awards & Reception 5:00 – 6:30 PM. Registration for the awards reception will follow.
