As WLA reported recently – today is the launch of Guidelines & Performance Benchmarks of the Sustainable Sites Initiative. You can download the 233 page report from the Sustainable Sites website.
Today is also the opening of the Call for Pilot Projects to test various aspects of the Sustainable Sites Initiative Rating System using a cross-section of project types, sizes and geographic locations throughout the design, construction and maintenance stages. Feedback from the pilot projects will be used to revise the final rating system and inform the technical reference manual.
Projects outside the USA will be considered but additional documentation will be required in relation to regulations and systems. The Pilot Program does not have an application fee, however fees during the pilot project will range between$500 to $5000.
