Making Sustainable Design a Reality

Standard

An interesting blog posting by a civil engineer (Dana Breig Probert),  dealing with the hurdles of developers and other stakeholders in an effort to move towards sustainable design. It’s written for the civil engineering audience but it is still an interesting and relevant posting. This may be a good example of sustainable design beyond products and into the larger scope of architecture. It may also be a good example of how business and sustainability issues can work hand in hand.

Here is a copy of the headings for each of his five points:

1. Get inspired and get involved

2. Realize that everyone is a salesperson and learn to sell your ideas

3. Focus on real value and real issues

4. Find ways to learn and leverage everything you can

5. Make a few simple changes in your site plan
