In today’s environment, the conditions and constraints under which infrastructure must perform are increasingly challenging. Demands for water and energy resources continue to climb, making conservation and the use of alternatives a design requirement. As the effects of a warming climate are likely to continue, communities are being forced to adapt to new conditions through corresponding changes in infrastructure design and construction. In order to meet the serious challenges that communities face for infrastructure, the Envision™ rating system has been designed to be used not only as a project assessment tool but as a guidance for sustainable infrastructure design and as an integrated education and resource library. The purpose of Envision is to initiate a systemic change and to transform the way infrastructure is designed, built and operated. The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) developed Envision™ with the assistance of the Harvard Zofnass Program. The Envision™ program is similar to the LEED program, but applies to infrastructure projects.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
