SOLAR 2007




  July 13, 2007 

Cleveland Tool Day at Cleveland Environmental Center (CEC) explored Ohio's first  green adaptive reuse designed by Doty & Miller Architects & Planners. The building features a plethora of green strategies including a green roof, photovoltaics, and daylighting. The history and sustainable design features of the former bank building are highlighted in the CEC Virtual Tour. Floor plans and elevations are also available on line.

This all-day workshop provided a setting in which participants learned to use handheld instruments, conducted a building performance case study through structured methodology, provided hypothesis and investigation strategy formulation, allowed behind-the-scenes building investigations, and culminated in team presentations of study results to the workshop participants. Participants gained understanding of objective and subjective procedures for performing post-occupancy evaluations of buildings.
