Time and the elements add a patina to historic buildings and retaining the character of historic buildings is crucial to identifying their stories but age and wear can also undermine structural integrity and obscure architectural details which results in the need for necessary repairs. Additionally, new standards for energy conservation have come into wider usage, resulting in re-examinations of buildings’ energy systems and insulation. Combining sustainable design with preservation practices encourages the most sustainable of practices: working with a building that has already been built while also protecting the environment and promoting the quality of life through design.

Hear from experts who will present case studies of preservation projects and discuss new methods and materials used in sustainable and green architecture to get the answers to frequently-asked questions on these subjects. Attendees will come away with a new understanding of how green and sustainable architectural practices historic and landmark buildings is methodically approached, identified and carried out.
