Living Building Challenge
Living Building Challenge (LBC) asks the question, “What if every single act of design and construction made the world a better place?”
LBC demands regenerative design solutions – building projects that go beyond simply reducing harm and, instead, actually improve the local environment.
A Living Building Challenge project requires integrative teamwork and a clear understanding of occupant behavior and resource consumption. IES provides consulting on all aspects of LBC, including healthy building material research, planning for net zero energy and water use, and preparation of required documentation for certification.
