August 25 LEED Case Study: Barnett Tower Historical Building

One advantage to our current virtual environment is that we can attend events like this no matter where we are! The U.S. Green Building Council – Florida is hosting a LEED Case Study of the Barnett Tower historical building in Jacksonville, Florida and you are invited!

Learn how the 1926 Barnett Tower was transformed into a LEED-certified, mixed-use facility 

The Barnett Tower, originally built in 1926, was the main headquarters of Barnett National Bank, which was at that time the largest commercial bank in the state of Florida. Until the erection of the Aetna Building in 1954, the 18-story, 223 ft (68m) tall Barnett Building, nestled in Jacksonville’s urban core, laid claim to being the tallest building in the North Florida region. The Owners’ decision to rehabilitate the building came with significant challenges, but also with a great opportunity to contribute to the revitalization of Jacksonville’s historic downtown.
