Speakers: Michael Simpson, P.E., Senior Engineer, City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works; Paul Horton, Director of Sustainability, David Evans and Associates Inc.
Description: Have you been wondering how to make your projects more sustainable? Have your clients been asking for more sustainable planning and design? Paul Horton will provide an overview of the critical elements necessary to achieve a higher level of sustainability in projects. While we won't be able to make every project super green, we should nonetheless have a clear strategy (or approach) and a set of tools to allow us to make meaningful sustainable advances or improvements based on the specific situation and the current client conditions. Michael Simpson will discuss how the Los Angeles Unified School District practices integrating sustainability into new school construction. This presentation outlines a logical, sequential "approach" to integrating sustainability into projects. Quiz provided at the end.
