NEO Green Building Site Tour

NEO Chapter of the USGBC is thrilled to take you behind the scenes of this special project.It's rare to have both new construction and historic renovation comprise a building project. It's rarer for a combined building project to be tackled by a non-profit organization. And it's most rare for the non-profit to choose to construct the project under LEED criteria. But that's just what Cogswell Hall aspired to do and completed last year!Since 1913, the inspirational and dedicated Cogswell Hall has been a residence providing affordable housing and supportive services for adults facing critical life challenges who might otherwise be homeless. The decision to expand their operations while incorporating high levels of sustainability required unique public - private partnerships and focus on multiple metrics such Green Communities Green Building checklist, historic tax credits, low income housing tax credits and USGBC LEED checklist criteria.Cogswell's Executive Director, Diana Cyganovich, and Jerimiah Luckett, LEED AP and Sustainability Director of Doty & Miller Architects will facilitate this tour and presentation. You'll have the chance to learn firsthand what the process was like to complete this $8 million project and see several of Cogswell Hall's sustainable features.Cost: Local NEO Chapter members FREE / Non-members $10Space is limited to 40 attendees. Advance registration required on the Events page at www.neogreenbuilding.org.NEO Chapter of the USGBC is thrilled to take you behind the scenes of this special project.It's rare to have both new construction and historic renovation comprise a building project.
