Event description

Description

In this class, we will examine how to approach a building site with care and consideration for long-term resilience.

We will begin with site assessment, initial preparation and mobilization, and move onto the measures of keeping on-site and off-site impacts minimal. We will examine measures to mitigate storm water, protect trees and remediate a building site upon project completion.

This class is ideal for builders, architects, landscape architects, and developers.

This event is part of an ongoing monthly workshop series hosted by the nonprofit Green Built Alliance through the second half of 2019 that aims at educating and engaging building professionals in regenerative design.
