Presidio Talk: What’s Old is Green – Sustainability and Historic Rehabilitation in the 21st Century
While “green building” has typically applied to new construction, the Presidio is demonstrating that historic rehabilitation and green building practices are natural partners. Join the Presidio Trust’s Chandler McCoy and Jeanne Miernyk to learn about recent park projects that celebrate both history and the environment, including efforts that have received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
The talk will place significant focus on the Presidio's Public Health Service District, which recently became the first fully certified LEED ND (Neighborhood Development) project, and the first project in the country to earn the LEED credit for Historic Resource Preservation and Adaptive Reuse.
