Growth Through Adaptive Reuse Online Modules


Community planners need to maximize the reuse of community assets when building and shaping their communities. There are three types of adaptive reuse that will be explored: greyfield, brownfield and historical. This module explores how communities can improve their economic future and save their green spaces, which are crucial to sustainable communities by revitalizing urban areas. Unit topics include:

  • Unit AR.1: Introduction to Reusing the Built Environment
  • Unit AR.2: Types of Reuse
  • Unit AR.3: Planning for Reuse
  • Unit AR.4: Brownfields: Environmental Contamination
