The goals for ReMain Ventures’ renovation projects are environmental responsibility and historic preservation.
- 54 Main Street was certified LEED Silver and won the Nantucket Preservation Trust's Preservation Award in 2009. By making decisions like using old horse hair plaster to repoint the interior of the brick walls, 96% of the original historic fabric was able to be preserved or reused.
- 56 Centre Street has a geothermal system to regulate room temperature. Rainwater is captured for facility use, and sustainable products are featured throughout the interior. It was certified LEED Gold in 2016.
- 22 Federal Street, also certified LEED Gold, features locally sourced materials, Energy Star rated kitchen equipment, and hot water from a 93% thermally efficient boiler.
With these projects, ReMain Ventures seeks to lead the way in building renovation. In the process, we have shown how expert designs can achieve the highest distinctions in environmental stewardship while strictly conforming to historical preservation standards.
