Join Jean Carroon FAIA, LEED, principal, Goody Clancy, for a fascinating one-hour tour through the General Services Administration’s 2010 renewal of the historic John W. McCormack Post Office and Courthouse, a national model of environmental, social and economic sustainability.
Experience state-of-the-art design and restored heritage areas within this 600,000-square-foot LEED Gold renovation. Understand the value of an integrated design process, such as that between the Goody Clancy design team and the Environmental Protection Agency, the primary tenant.
Learn about the viability of building reuse to avoid the effects of new construction while increasing occupancy density and providing the sense of place and monumentality that the original design intended.
