Preservation NJ highlights some 2008 preservation successes

November 20, 2008

Preservation New Jersey has had a busy and successful year, as we’ve joined our local and state partners in preserving important historic places, reached out to elected officials for their support, provided critical help to communities with preservation challenges and celebrated preservation victories.

Continuing our initiatives to incorporate historic preservation with “green” building values, PNJ co-sponsored the annual NJ Preservation Conference in June, presenting The Greenest Building is the One That’s Already Built, exploring sustainability values and opportunities of preserved places. We co-sponsored a groundbreaking, two day charrette with more than 50 preservation professionals who explored the sustainable reuse potential of the iconic, Eero Saarinen-designed Bell Labs site. And the PNJ Building Industry Network hosted another charrette where professionals analyzed the sustainable characteristics of an unrehabilitated landmark in New Brunswick.  PNJ is participating in the Rutgers Center for Green Building’s program to develop Green Home Renovation Guidelines. Look for upcoming postings on PNJ’s “Greener Heritage” blog with reports on these exciting program results.
