The Georgia Trust Historic Preservation Institute offers preservation courses throughout the year.

Sustainable Preservation for Homeowners

September 20, 2018, 4-6 p.m.

Rhodes Hall | 1516 Peachtree Street, NW
Atlanta, GA 30309

You’ve heard that the greenest building is the one that’s already built, but if you live in a historic house you’ve probably gotten sticker shock from high utility bills. That’s why The Georgia Trust teamed up with Southface Energy Institute to create the Earthcraft Sustainable Preservation program (ECSP), the nation’s first green building certification program for historic buildings. With our recent West Atlanta Preservation Initiative, we are rehabilitating two historic houses using the ECSP program that will make them comfortable and long-lasting with low operating costs.

We are pleased to announce the first in a series of educational opportunities focused on ECSP for single family residential or generally smaller historic buildings. Learn the basics of building science, so you can begin to understand how your house functions as a system as you consider what sustainable and cost-effective solutions you can use to preserve your house, lower your bills, and be more sensitive to the environment. Amelia Godfrey, EarthCraft program manager, will be our guest lecturer. 

Who should sign up?
Anyone who is interested in learning more about the compatible relationship between historic preservation and sustainability, owners of historic houses, or contractors who want to learn how to become ECSP certified.

$20 will reserve your space and give you access to materials as well as light refreshments. Space is limited, so reserve your spot now!
