Sustainability Committee Technical Presentation
Thursday, November 19, 2020 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
The Sustainability Committee is hosting a technical presentation every other month. This first in this series will be on the Living Building Challenge: The Role Civil Engineers Play.
Haley Gardner, Manager, Buildings + Energy, ILFI
Haley will present on the general role that civil engineers play in allowing project teams to achieve their sustainability goals, specifically when it comes to meeting targets set by rating systems. She will focus on the Living Building Challenge, including the Zero Carbon program aimed at reducing embodied carbon for heavy structural materials which structural engineers play a huge role in, in many ways. The Living Building Challenge is an international sustainable building certification program run by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI). Haley will also discuss the LBC Water Petal, particularly on stormwater management and wastewater management. She is looking to paint a broad picture for where everyone fits in within creating a sustainable built environment and a living future!
