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 this LEED preparation workshop to promote the joint consideration of sustainability and historic preservation in planning the built environment.
