TM08 - Connecting Environmental Design with the Community

Monday, November 12 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM | Tour Meet Desk « Back

Abstract Text:

Buildings designed for the community in an environmentally-conscious way connect to “sustainability” in many ways. The facilities on this tour contribute necessary services to their communities and do so in buildings that respect the environment. Come see how LEED design and materials and furniture reuse created three distinct, useful spaces!

Learning Objectives:

Identify sustainable design strategies in the buildings and discuss their effectiveness in the design and function of the facility.

Discuss how the design of these facilities benefits social connectivity and community engagement, nurtures strategic partnerships, and promotes sustainable design.

Evaluate the benefits of materials reuse in both a construction waste management plan as well as through adaptive reuse projects.

Assess the importance of an integrative, collaborative design approach to project efficiency, community connectivity, budget considerations, and building performance.
