Building Resilience: Sustainable Rehabilitation for Environmental and Cultural Conservation

BUILDING RESILIENCE: PRACTICAL GUIDELINES FOR THE SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION OF BUILDINGS IN CANADA
 is a new National guideline focusing on existing buildings’ “green” rehabilitation.  It assists owners and designers by leveraging the interconnection between heritage preservation and environmental conservation while promoting related best practices.  This session, by the document’s authors, explores overall issues and challenges, and provides a primer on building component guideline sections.  The guidelines approach architectural sustainability from a heritage perspective while highlighting interrelated elements like operations and maintenance, mechanical/electrical systems, and modern buildings.  A case study will illustrate concepts and a sample building rehab exercise will provide engagement.
