BD+C 256: LEED and Historic Preservation
As efforts are taken to renovate and maintain the existing building stock to LEED standards, buildings designated as historically significant properties can present additional obstacles, as extra care is needed to retain their integrity.

Join as USGBC and experts from the field share first-hand experience in tackling these unique efforts.
