NPH Brown Bag Training: Sustainable Site Design

October 25, 2018 / 11:30 am - 2 pm

Innovations and Strategies for Developing High Achieving Green Projects

Today we work in a context where affordable housing infill site selection and planning is critical in guaranteeing a project's ability to compete for funding and rank high on sustainable measure indexes. Particularly during initial site layout, we must make decisions and evaluate trade-offs that will impact the achievable level of LEED or GreenPoint certification. This Brown Bag training will discuss the competing challenges facing green affordable housing projects, such as the need to maximize unit count, satisfy parking demands, and design active open space while meeting Stormwater C.3 Guidelines and satisfying jurisdictional and utility requirements. Through an interdisciplinary panel discussion of case studies, attendees will learn strategies to meet the California Building Code CalGreen, GreenPoint, and LEED requirements, and to help projects exceed Title 24 Energy Modeling requirements.
