ASCE ENVISION Webinar

About the Event
Register for an ASCE Webinar given by Elizabeth J. Bradford, MS, ENV SP on an introduction to the Envision Sustainable Infrastructure Rating System!
Since its launch in 2012, many organizations have begun using the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure’s Envision® rating system (Envision) to plan and design their civil infrastructure projects more sustainably and resiliently. Typically, organizations interested in Envision started by supporting staff credentialing followed by reviewing a previously designed and highly sustainable project for an Envision certification award. As organizational capacity increased, these public agencies began issuing requests for proposals (RFPs) and requests for qualifications (RFQs) that include specifications for Envision. And, beginning in 2016, cities and counties across the United States—particularly progressive public agencies that were early adopters of policies requiring LEED—began to formally adopt policies for the use of Envision as the infrastructure complement to LEED for buildings. This presentation will include an overview of Envision with a focus on credits and metrics evaluated, and trends in adoption and use of Envision, including current trends specific to California.
