Overview

With the advent of “New Town Centers” (that combine life, work & play) in the suburbs and master planned “traditional/New Urbanist neighborhoods” being developed all over the country, the importance of integrating all aspects of sustainability as early as possible in projects from the master plan down to the individual building level has taken on critical importance. At both the master plan as well as the individual building level, the longer you wait to incorporate sustainable practices, the more expensive and possibly less effective they can be. Add the District’s new Green Building Act and storm water management ordinance and the importance of thoughtful advanced integrated planning in terms of sustainability becomes critical.
