Summary "In the pursuit of sustainable development, communities have much to gain from adaptively reusing historic buildings. Bypassing the wasteful process of demolition and reconstruction alone sells the environmental benefits of adaptive use. Environmental benefits, combined with the energy savings and social advantage of recycling a valued heritage place make adaptive use of historic buildings an essential component of sustainable development. To mark Australia's Year of the Built Environment 2004, this booklet will explore some of the environmental, social and economic benefits of the adaptive reuse of historic buildings".-- Intro
