The LEED rating system has become the most widely used green building program in the world because architects and engineers made it their own. By integrating LEED’s principles into practice and by selling it to their clients, professionals led the way.
Just as LEED undeniably transformed the built environment, SITES has the ability to transform land development and use. And as SITES continues on its quest to follow LEED’s trajectory, GBCI is committed to making it easy for landscape professionals—including landscape architects, civil engineers and government leaders—to bring SITES to their clients and to the market.
We invite you to join us for our first SITES Quarterly Call of 2017 on Feb. 16, 2017 from 1–2:30 p.m. EST, where GBCI staff will present the newly created “SITES Client Deck” and lead a discussion on how practitioners can drive the adoption of SITES.
For the first time ever, the SITES client deck lays out the business case for green infrastructure, sustainability and resiliency on land and succinctly describes how SITES is the best tool for managing a project that has those goals. The discussion that will follow will allow for call participants to interact with one another and discuss best practices for convincing your client to pursue SITES certification.
SITES Quarterly Call 2: Integrating SITES into Professional Practice: Bringing SITES to Clients
