In 2007 the United Nations initiated a multi-year, $2 billion renovation, the most extensive renovation since its construction. Sustainability, security, accessibility, fire and safety compliance, and internal infrastructure drove the renovation priorities. As a world sustainability advocate, the UN leads by example with its campus renovations. Of paramount importance was the decision to renovate, as opposed to demolishing the complex in favor of new construction.
This presentation will cover the history of the initial construction of the UN and then focus on the scale and staging of this complex historic preservation project and measures incorporated into it.
