The Green Premium for New School Construction

Will Pearce authored an article on the green premium for new school construction for the latest edition of the Whiteford, Taylor & Preston Green Building and Sustainability Newsletter.  The phrase "green premium" refers to the additional construction cost associated with complying with green building standards.  All new public school construction in Maryland will have to comply with the High Performance Buildings Act of 2008; the State is picking up half the green premium until 2014, after which it will be the full responsibility of the county school boards.  Click here to read the article.
