Making Good Happen: Shared Wisdom on LBC Project Management

We know Living Buildings are possible — but Living, on time, and on budget?

Whether you’re skeptical, a believer, or somewhere in between, we want you at ILFI’s next Living Future Member Webinar. We’ll be bringing together three incredible Living Building champions – Amanda Brookes (President, Catalyst Partners), Lauren McNeill (Sr. Sustainability Consultant, Group14), and Scott Kelly (Principal, Re:Vision) – to share their collective wisdom on LBC project management accumulated through multiple successful certifications. Our intrepid moderator, Andrea Cooper (Vice President of Special Projects, ILFI), will lead our panelists in diving into specifics on everything from cost concerns, scheduling tips, and contract mechanisms to securing the buy-in of your project owner and team. 

This one-hour webinar is for those managing (or planning to manage) an Living Building project in any capacity. Come to listen, come to learn, and come to share your own experience. We’ll be using the chat to capture reactions, responses, and resources shared by our fourth and most experienced panelist: you, the audience. Don’t miss this opportunity for some serious co-learning!

Learning objectives:

  • Attendees will be able to describe strategies for securing the buy-in of their project team on achieving Living Building Challenge Certification, Petal Certification, or Core Green Building Certification. 
  • Attendees will be able to discuss major factors contributing to the cost premium of Living, Petal, and Core projects, as well as opportunities for reducing that cost premium. 
  • Attendees will be able to predict how schedule development and management for projects pursuing Living, Petal, or Core certification will need to diverge from that of a “typical” project. 
  • Attendees will be able to explain how contract documents can be used to support successful Living, Petal, or Core certification.
