What: All too often “green” building is associated with “new” building—but New York City’s pre-war structures can actually be more energy efficient and sustainable than new ones.  With a “whole building” maintenance and restoration approach, older buildings can cost-effectively become more energy efficient and comfortable.  This all-day seminar will focus on common-sense building management tools and techniques that can be employed by residents and building managers alike to incorporate “green living” easily into every day life.  
 
“Green” and “energy efficient” have become watchwords in the real-estate industry-- but what do they mean when it comes to managing coops and renovating apartments?  Practical and easily employable tips on energy efficiency will also be given— the participant will never think that green building and historic preservation are incompatible again!
