Event Description

Participants will not only see LEED in action but learn about the process and lessons learned from project team members. They will discuss aspects, strategies and policies that contributed to carbon reduction and LEED certification goals.

From the project 's architect Self + Tucker: The Universal Life Insurance Building, designed by the renowned architectural firm McKissack & McKissack in 1949, is planned to be developed and reused as office space. The limestone exterior complements the Egyptian Revival architectural motif of essential historical qualities, proudly placing the structure on the National Register of Historic Places. To support its historic preservation objectives the building’s envelope and the main corridors have been designed to meet the requirements of historic tax credits. Self Tucker Properties aims to renovate its use through a healthy, responsible and environmentally sensitive process that incorporate energy efficient systems, recycled products and waste reduction practices. The new Universal Life Building will feature a green roof and solar power, qualifying the design for LEED certification.
