Friday, May 6, 2011 - 7:00AM

The National Park Services has published a new document called “The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation & Illustrated Guidelines on Sustainability for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings” that offer guidance on how to make historic buildings more sustainable in a manner that will preserve their historic character and that will meet The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. NPS says the sustainability guidelines were developed with the guidance and support of numerous public agencies, professional organizations and individuals. The written guidance is illustrated with examples of appropriate or “recommended” treatments and some that are “not recommended” or could negatively impact the building’s historic character.
