Being green ain’t so easy when there’s not much green (funding) to begin with. For small projects with modest budgets, the added upfront expense of designing sustainably may seem cost-prohibitive. However, leading small firm design professionals will highlight key opportunities to implement strategies that not only have lower up front costs but also provide key environmental benefits, such as rainwater harvesting, innovative material use, appropriate siting strategies, and incentive programs that make being green possible for smaller projects.
Specifically, this program suggests how participants might produce a workshop series directed at small-scale practitioners based on how we build, the way we build, and what we build.
