Puerto Rico


The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico owns two historic buildings that are not energy and water efficient. Desiring to be a role model of energy and water conservation, the Trust wants to renovate them. The goal of this project was to recommend cost- effective renovations to increase energy and water efficiency while preserving each building's historic character. Through observations, archival research and interviews, we determined the potential areas for energy and water conservation and methods for educating the public.
