Event Details

DESCRIPTION: 

 

Landscapes can provide several environmental benefits to a site or a property. Infact they are increasingly being recognized as alternatives to traditional infrastructure and becoming key elements of green building projects.

 

Sustainable landscapes need to be planned the same way as any green project- using a well-defined methodology. Various environmental impacts of landscapes need to be assessed and measured. Synergies between different strategies need to be explored as well so that the project meets established benchmarks efficiently. A comprehensive way to accomplish this could be by tapping into landscape provisions under different rating systems.

 

This course examines different aspects of landscape performance under a green building rating system (LEED BD+C), a green community rating system (LEED ND) and a dedicated sustainable land rating system (SITES). It’ll give you key metrics of landscape sustainability- both quantitative and qualitative- for different scales of projects.

 

If you’re looking to integrate sustainable landscapes into your project, this course is for you! At the end of this course, you’ll be able to set high-performance goals for your project. 

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe sustainability benefits of landscapes

2. List metrics from LEED and SITES for designing water-efficient landscapes

3. Use benchmarks in LEED and SITES for planning sustainable softscape

4. Enumerate metrics for landscape strategies for enhancing built environments
