Four years after helping launch the Envision infrastructure sustainability rating tool, a Harvard University graduate school of design program published a guidebook in 2016 for municipalities on how to take an integrated approach to designing and building sustainable infrastructure in concert with urban planning. The new guidebook, entitled “Planning Sustainable Cities: An Infrastructure Based Approach,” provides tools for knitting those individual projects into a seamless and sustainable network.
During this webinar, we will ask a panel of academics and industry leaders to discuss the new tool for infrastructure system performance and how to leverage synergies among buildings and other assets to minimize demands on infrastructure.
Learning Objectives: After viewing this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Recognize what makes a new city sustainable through the intersection of infrastructure systems, buildings and planning.
- Explain the benefits and challenges of designing and running urban infrastructure in a holistic way.
- Demonstrate specific leadership and decision-making steps that will make conceiving, planning, and implementing sustainable infrastructure in cities work more efficiently.
- Discuss the implications of the intersection between emerging technology and infrastructure as well as technology’s role in sustainable & resilient infrastructure throughout the life of an asset.
