Aug 29, 2018 8:30am ‐ Aug 29, 2018 9:20am


Description

The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) Envision® is a decision-making guide, providing sustainability metrics for all types of infrastructure assets. The industry understanding of resilience has grown tremendously, especially in the wake of hurricanes occurring over the last ten years. ISI has identified the need to expand the Envision® framework to incorporate a more advanced appreciation and understanding of resilience. The updated Envision v3 will also include a greater emphasis on evaluating the economics of infrastructure projects.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, you will be better able to: 

  • Identify project elements that will increase resiliency and sustainability under Envision v3.
  • Prepare a triple bottom-line, Envision v3 checklist for self-assessment of project sustainability.
  • Design projects in accordance with the new Envision v3 framework to achieve maximum points towards project awards.
