Sustainable Development & Design
Health, Safety and Welfare
1. To introduce – and reinforce – the principles of sustainable site design and stormwater management.
2. To identify and understand progressive strategies that provide a “greener” or more sustainable approach to site design and stormwater management.
3. To demonstrate stormwater measures in a large-scale city-wide program, to a campus-wide application, at a large urban park, on a single building site, in a city alley, and for small infill projects.
4. To review case studies in which sustainable stormwater strategies have been developed and then implemented. The case studies will allow the attendee to develop a level of understanding of where and how various stormwater strategies can be implemented and how these strategies affect the site and building uses.
