In response to critical concerns about resource conservation coupled with an increased appreciation of sustainable design, focus had sharpened on the relationship between a building and its site. Site assessment is an analysis of the site’s physical and natural conditions which yield opportunities for best management practices (BMPs) for sustainable planning, design, and construction. This course examines specific site assessment approaches for soil testing, slope suitability, hydrologic analysis, invasive and native species evaluation, vegetation preservation and transplantation, and onsite energy and water potential. A comprehensive introduction to all stages of the site assessment process will also be provided along with an understanding of how performing a site assessment can benefit the health, safety, and welfare of occupants and their environment. Note: This is a live webinar delivered via GoToWebinar. Session instructions will be emailed to you 24-48 hours prior to the webinar and the morning of the webinar.
