Sustainability @CityHall

Join us at City Hall on the 3rd Tuesday of the month on the 10th Floor. This event series brings together leaders from the AIA|LA, the Los Angeles Business Council, the Urban Land Institute, and USGBC-LA to discuss sustainably built projects. The goal is to have meaningful discussion on what barriers exist to completing projects and make suggestions on streamlining sustainability for all.

Special thanks to Mayor Garcetti's Office of Sustainability for inspiring and facilitating this series.

August 2014 Presentation:

  • What is Envision? What is meant by the "triple bottom line"?
  • There's no better introduction to this emerging standard for public works projects than the South Los Angeles Wetlands. This landmark project transformed a former MTA bus yard into a community wildlife resource, an innovative model for stormwater management and stakeholder partnering. It is also one of two projects nationwide that have been awarded Platinum designation under the Envision Infrastructure Rating System. Learn about Envision as a planning toolkit and a rating system.

Join Sean Vargas, P.E., ENV SP, LEED AP, as he walks us through the Envision application process after the fact, and why Envision is worth championing. We'll also talk about the taking the test.
