Posted on: May 22nd, 2008 by Barbara Campagna

Alexander Hamilton US Custom House, Manhattan

May 27 Update:  I've just been informed that this symposium has been postponed until the Fall.  Sorry if you were hoping to attend.  In the meantime, both Maryland and New Jersey have statewide conferences in the next week with Sustainability tracks.

The Preservation Maryland conference is this week in Hagerstown, Thursday and Friday, May 29th and 30th.  The Preservation New Jersey conference is next week Wednesday and Thursday, June 4th and 5th in New Brunswick, NJ.


GSA’s Northeast and Caribbean Region, in co-sponsorship with the New York Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation will host a symposium at the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House in New York City to catalyze the exchange of ideas between the historic preservation and sustainability communities. This forum will address current challenges to improve building performance while strengthening sustainability of historic landmarks.

The panel will include experts representing the U.S. Green Building Council, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and other public and private entities. Panel members are:

  1. Barbara A. Campagna, AIA, LEED AP, Graham Gund Architect of the National Trust, Stewardship of Historic Sites, National Trust for Historic Preservation
  2. Melissa Gallagher-Rogers, Manager, Government & Higher Education Sectors, U.S. Green Building Council
  3. Jean Carroon, FAIA, LEED AP, Goody Clancy
  4. Amanda Lehman, LEED AP, Cook + Fox Architects
  5. Donald Horn, AIA, LEED AP, Sustainable Design Program Expert, U.S. General Services Administration


If you're in NY then and would like to participate in more discussion regarding the impact of LEED v.3 on existing and historic buildings, this would be the place to do it. It's a chance to visit one of GSA's most important buildings - the Alexander Hamilton Custom House designed by Cass Gilbert - and for $10, it's quite a bargain! Read more about this event on GSA's website.
