    In-Depth Seminar 
    Tree Preservation in Design and Construction

    Why do so many green building renderings show small newly planted trees? When in reality, here in Missouri, development is often set on lots with mature landscape trees or within native woodlands and projects could capitalize on this existing resource.

    This presentation will make the case for preserving tree canopy on site to jump start the landscape’s ecosystem services such as improving human health and energy efficiencies. It will also cover the technical elements to a successful tree preservation project, including published BMPs and professional organizations that can help ensure trees stay healthy and structurally sound in the process.

    Regional examples and lessons-learned will showcase the great potential and the possible challenges with tree preservation. 

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Calculate the value of mature trees on a project.
    • Discuss the technical requirements for tree protection.
    • Identify implementation challenges.
    • Explore regional examples and lessons-learned which showcase the great potential and the possible challenges with tree preservation.

       February 13 Program
    Sustainable Lighting

    Hosted in partnership with Illuminating Engineering Society – St. Louis Section.

    This course will help attendees have a solid foundation of understanding of the various transparency material disclosures currently available in the marketplace, such as Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations (HPDs), and others including Declare labels. This basis for understanding will be directly related to the application of these disclosures to LEED V4 materials credits, including those specific to BD+C, O+M, and ID+C credit requirements.

    The course will also lay a foundation of knowledge for attendees on the topic of optimization, and the credits available under LEED for optimized materials. The information will be delivered through the lens of lighting fixtures to provide examples of disclosures and optimization possibilities, and to explore how technology advancements can play into optimization.

    A general summary of terminology will be included during this course hour, so that attendees feel confidant in asking for, and using the information within the available transparency material disclosures. We will underscore the basics, such as life cycle analyses, environmental impact categories of EPD, “Red Listed Ingredients of Concern,” responsible sourcing and supply chain, and third party verified platforms.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Gain the solid understanding of transparency and optimization disclosures and documents that meet LEED V4 and other building challenges’ materials credits requirements,
    • Gain a working-level of knowledge to understand the terminology of these documents and how to ask for these disclosures from manufacturers,
    • Provide illustrative examples of how transparency and optimization work together to create more responsible materials and building products,
    • Empower attendees to play an active role in transforming the marketplace of materials through application of LEED V4 and using material disclosures

    Sustainable SITES Initiative Workshop

    Presented in parntership with ASLA-St. Louis.

    Learn about the SITES rating system at a full-day workshop at O’Fallon Park Recreation Complex in St. Louis, MO.

    Modeled after LEED and administered by GBCI, the Sustainable SITES Initiative (SITES) defines what a sustainable site is and elevates the value of landscapes in the built environment. The SITES v2 Rating System is a set of guidelines and performance-based metrics that align land development and management with innovative sustainable design, covering areas such as soil, vegetation, water, materials and human health and well-being. SITES certification is for development projects located on sites with or without buildings – ranging from national parks to corporate campuses, streetscapes to homes and more. The rating system is currently being used by landscape architects, designers, engineers, developers, policy-makers and others.

    Land is a crucial component of the built environment and can be planned, designed, developed and maintained to protect and enhance the benefits we drive from healthy functioning landscapes. The four overarching goals of the SITES rating system are to create regenerative systems and foster resiliency; ensure future source supply and mitigate climate change; transform the market through design, development and maintenance practices; and enhance human wellbeing and strengthen the community.

    • Explore the SITES v2 rating system with real-world project examples, including two local SITES case studies.
    • Discover important connections and distinctions between SITES and LEED.
    • Engage in live discussion and application of SITES strategies with active projects.
    • Examine revitalization efforts planned for the workshop site, O'Fallon Park, as part of the "Back to Nature in O'Fallon Park" project currently underway and supported by the Missouri Department of Conservation.

    After attending the workshop, you’ll be able to speak to the value of SITES, understand the central rating system components and themes, identify the important steps for pursuing SITES certification and set a framework to start studying for the SITES AP exam.
