A Brick Rehab Meets LEED’s Highest Standards

When architect Richard Renner saw an old brick store for sale, he envisioned it as a site both for his practice’s office and for his own residence. After a great deal of work and a strong focus on green design, Renner ended up with both a new office and a new home, certified LEED Platinum. This article includes details on insulating the building, strengthening the roof, creating a new slab, and installing photovoltaic panels on the roof. Renner and his wife, along with a small crew of hired helpers, also installed a vegetative roof on the building; that project required only about three hours’ work.
