{Past Event} - Green Design & Construction Series: Sustainable Renovation of Existing Buildings: Case Studies

September 28, 2011 - 2:00 pm - September 28, 2011 - 3:30 pm -- Eastern Standard Time


How can LEED become a blueprint for successful integration of sustainability principles into the existing and renovated healthcare physical environment? With 24 LEED registered renovation and new construction projects, North Shore Long Island Jewish Medical Center has learned how to adapt plans and designs to the rating system and to evaluate those elements in specific contexts. Drawing from a range of projects across the system, this session will examine how to use LEED tools as a blueprint for success in transforming aging healthcare facilities into environmentally- responsive role models for the community.
