Overview

Local governments have many tools for creating sustainable communities. The Envision® rating system is celebrating 5 years of advancing sustainable infrastructure and is gaining popularity in Virginia. Envision was designed to complement the LEED rating system for green buildings (USGBC) by providing sustainability recommendations for all types of infrastructure projects: roads, waterMore pipelines, wastewater treatment plants, etc. Envision also addresses all project lifecycle phases: planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance, and deconstruction. As such, Envision is a tool for planners, designers, and other development professionals.

Learn how Envision helps infrastructure owners translate goals from comprehensive plans and sustainability initiatives into actions on individual infrastructure projects. Envision is freely available as a guidance manual, online scoresheet, and pre-assessment checklist. There are also Envision programs for a professional credential and project recognition available on a fee basis. The impact on Virginia’s infrastructure will be discussed.
