In 1999, the Design Trust and the New York City Department of Design & Construction released the High Performance Building Guidelines, an acclaimed handbook for constructing 'green' municipal buildings.

This report, published three years after the original building guidelines, describes how the recommendations were put into practice on a number of demonstration projects, including the following:

Bronx Criminal Court Complex
Children's Intake Center
Kensington Branch Library
New York Hall of Science
Queens Botanical Garden
Seabury Day Care Center
