LEED has become an industry standard for demonstrating the “sustainability” of new construction and rehabilitation projects.  While LEED is not the only rating system for buildings at this time it is the most widely used in the United States.  The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training is offering LEED preparation workshops to promote the joint consideration of sustainability and historic preservation in planning the built environment.

NCPTT will offer Green Preservation: A LEED Technical Review and Exam Preparation Workshop May10-12, 2011 at the Hall of States in Washington, D.C.  This three day workshop will prepare participants to take the LEED Green Associate Exam.  Case studies demonstrating historic structures that pursued LEED certification with retaining the historic fabric will also be discussed during the workshop.

The instructor will be Donna Isaacs, LEED AP, BD&C, a graduate of University of Florida’s M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building Construction and Miami-Dade College. Her research focuses on the combination of green building and historic preservation and its potential for community revitalization. She previously served as the Executive Director of the Cotton Club Museum and Cultural Center in Gainesville, Florida, has instructed over 60 LEED workshops nationwide,  and developed a series of LEED 2009 exam prep workshops for Florida International University.

Classes are scheduled to run from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm with two 15 minute breaks and an hour for lunch.
