Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2.
    • Sustainability &
    • Historic Preservation
    • What do historic tax credits have to do with environmental and economic sustainability?
  • 3.
    • One-third of all solid waste dumped in landfills is from construction debris
    • Embodied Energy – total expenditure of energy in the creation of the building and its materials
    • 56,000 gallons of gasoline is wasted – energy of average historic building carted off to landfill
  • 4.
    • In Ohio, $1 million dollar in rehab of an historic building creates 22.9 jobs and ultimately $823,000 in household income
    • New construction – half materials and half labor
    • Rehabilitation – 60 to 70% labor – good, well-paying jobs
    • Historic Preservation is overwhelmingly done by small firms
  • 5.
    • Preserve an historic building – preserving land
    • Rehabilitate historic building – reducing waste generation
    • Reuse an historic building – ultimate in recycling
  • 6.
    • Over-the-Rhine Green Historic Study
    • Explored barriers and opportunities to developing green historic buildings
    • Managed by Over-the-Rhine Foundation and Gray & Pape
    • Funded by OHPO/NPS (CLG Grant), Duke Energy and generous pro-bono services
  • 7.
    • Study designed & evaluated four prototypical building types in Over-the-Rhine
    • 1313 Clay – originally stable for Brauer Dairy – reuse as owner’s residence and rental apartment
    • 1420 Pleasant – small tenement apartments – reuse as larger more marketable apartments
  • 8.
    • 1700 Vine – originally storefront with upper residential units – reuse as storefront, owner’s residence and rental apartment
    • 1202-1204 Main – originally hotel for vaudeville performers – reuse commercial space at street level, condos on upper floors
  • 9.
    • Assessed ability to meet Leadership in Environmental Design (LEED) certification, USGBC
    • Also comply with SOI Standards for Rehabilitation
    • All four buildings cost-effectively met, at minimum, LEED certification
    • Designs met SOI Standards for Rehabilitation
  • 10.
    • The Value of Communication
    • We discovered that most “conflict” between meeting LEED certification and proper historic preservation results from a mis-understanding of other disciplines, or an inadequate understanding of options – important to look at the whole picture.
    • Early communication critical to success!
  • 11.
    • LEED certification and Tax Credit certification require documentation of existing conditions – before you start work!
    • Both processes also require that the project is documented along the way, and verification that you did what you said you were going to do.
    • Bottom line – green historic tax credit projects are doable!
  • 12.
