Stakeholders met and participated in a Green Workshop in November to discuss how we define green, what we’d like to see, and different standards and certifications that building can be designed to meet.
Some of these systems include:
• Living Building Challenge
• Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
• Energy Star
• Earth Advantage
• Green Globes
We discussed the overall goals of the project with regard to sustainability. The idea here was to have clearly stated, testable objectives to guide the design team as the project moves forward.
Here’s a few documents on LEED and Living Building Challenge
