Best of GreenBuild Webcast Series -- Greening What's Already Here: LEED EB:O&M is the New Preservation Tool

If you missed 2014 GreenBuild, now is your chance to see some of the top-notch sessions that were recorded.

The construction and operation of buildings accounts for almost 50% of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. But reusing our existing buildings to make them more energy and resource efficient is one of the most immediate and measurable ways to address this growing concern. Historic buildings; such as the National Center for Preservation Technology & Training's 1923 Lee H. Nelson Hall in Louisiana; are retrofitting their buildings by combining time-tested preservation methods with green building practices.

NCPTT is using the greening of their headquarters as a transparent model process; leveraging their significant role in preservation research while demonstrating how to be better stewards. By using the growing body of sustainable preservation case studies; conducting eco-charrettes; energy audits and a sustainability management plan; understanding the original character-defining features of the building and integrating the necessary envelope; systems and site improvements with acknowledged green building practices; NCPTT has decided to use the LEED EB: O&M rating system (targeting LEED Gold) as the metric to guide both the maintenance and rehabilitation approaches at the site. New technologies and reactivation of original design features can provide innovations in green building design while debunking the myths that historic buildings cannot readily achieve LEED certification.

Learning Objectives
  • Demonstrate how original character-defining features in existing and historic buildings can be reactivated to improve energy and resource efficiency.; 
  • Discuss the importance of greening the operations of existing and historic buildings.; 
  • Demonstrate how LEED EB: O&M can be used as a cyclical maintenance and preservation tool.;
  • Identify the cultural and preservation metrics in the past and current versions of the LEED rating system and how the recognition and use of these metrics has been improving.
