Greening the Infrastructure
The infrastructure of a property can often have significant impacts on the natural environment. The Living Building Challenge (LBC) is one of the most rigorous green building certification standards that defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today. It acts to diminish the gap between current limits and ideal solutions. Projects that achieve this level of performance can claim to be the ‘greenest’ anywhere, and will serve as role models for others that follow. During this assessment, we will conduct a gap analysis to determine what steps are necessary to work towards achieving LBC accreditation.
These practical solutions will:
- Lower costs of operations
- Reduce utility dependence
- Increase use of healthy materials
- Provide a sense of "place"
