The Savannah Development and Renewal Authority presents a free workshop called “Can Historic Buildings Be Green Buildings?” on Thursday, July 17 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., at the SDRA Office, 518 Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
There is a common misconception that historic renovations and green buildings are incompatible. Presenting a case study of the first LEED-certified building in the southeast to be on the National Register of Historic Places, Clara Fishel of Melaver, Inc. will demonstrate that historic renovations and high performing, healthy buildings can (and should) go hand in hand.
This will be followed by a presentation by Melissa Jest of the Historic Savannah Foundation about the Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program administered by National Park Service and the Internal Revenue Service in partnership with State Historic Preservation Offices.
Space is limited so please R.S.V.P by July 11 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 912-651-6973. Lunch will be served.
