“We know how to create Living Buildings that are healthy, responsible, beautiful and long-lasting. We know how to design and construct net zero buildings that are sound investments. So why aren’t clients demanding these? How can we convince clients that net-zero and Living Building Challenge buildings are in their best interest? This interactive dialogue extends beyond technical skills and provides insight into the marketing conversations that can make these projects commonplace. Three building industry leaders will share lessons learned and their experiences developing project goals with clients through the pursuit of these high performing buildings. ”


Our first LBC project, The Class of 1966 Environmental Center at Williams College, has achieved Petal Certification.

The project successfully completed 3 audits and proved Net Zero water for 12 months. This project achieved certification in these six petals: site, water, materials, equity, beauty & health.

We couldn’t be more proud to have been the LBC consultant on the project. Congratulations Team!
