- Requirements Development
Environmental building design begins with the gathering of requirements. Learn how design decisions impact land, materials, water, and energy efficiency and lead to more sustainable designs.
During the conceptual design phase, consider alternative concepts for the project to achieve sustainable design requirements and minimize environmental impact.
- Detailed Design
Decide on final design and optimize site, materials, structure, and system details for sustainable use. Use BIM to conduct analysis and inform a common understanding of design intent.
- Implementation Documentation
During the implementation documentation phase, plan for optimal material use and minimal site disruption during construction for more sustainable designs.
Optimize material and equipment use and minimize site disruption during construction to deliver more sustainable projects with minimal impact on land and natural hydrology.
- Operate & Maintain
Explore sustainable design principles for commissioning, operating and maintaining cost-effective, energy-efficient buildings and infrastructure.
