Quantifying the Environmental Value of Building Reuse

While there is increasing discussion in various green building forums about the benefits of reusing buildings, few studies have sought to quantify the differences between the environmental impacts of building reuse versus new construction. This two-part workshop begins with the release of a recent study, “The Green Building: Quantifying the Environmental Value of Building Reuse”, the most comprehensive analysis to date comparing the environmental impacts of demolition and new construction to building reuse and retrofits. The second part of this workshop examines “Historic Places – Leaders of Built Environment Stewardship: Responsible Rehabilitation.” Participants will gain understanding of how, by studying heritage conservation approaches to heritage buildings, we can become better stewards of existing buildings. This two-part workshop takes place around the province this spring at the following locations:
