High-performing buildings don’t appear out of nowhere with a crash of lightning. Sustainability is an intentional process that begins before the first line is drawn and continues through design, construction, and occupancy.

Setting the stage often begins with a sustainability charrette where teams establish project goals and build excitement around strategies. Both LEED and Living Building Challenge recommend holding a charrette based on their frameworks. Another framework for designing and executing a high-performance project is the COTE Top Ten Measures of Sustainable Design. Traditionally seen as an awards criteria, the true potential of the COTE Top Ten framework is realized when used as a design tool.

Join a discussion contrasting and comparing these frameworks, and learn to set the stage for high performance with your next project.
