City of Dallas Hosts Envision Credentialing Workshop

City of Dallas demonstrated its commitment to sustainability by hosting an Envision Credentialing class on Tuesday, April 25th. Thirty-eight staff members representing seven different City departments joined Freese and Nichols. Jill Jordan, Dallas Assistant City Manager, began the training by describing how her experience in the credentialing seminar showed her the opportunities to implement the process-oriented rating system. Freese and Nichols facilitators, Todd Buckingham, P.E., ENV SP, Certified ISI Trainer, and Tricia Hatley, P.E., LEED AP, ENV SP, led the class.

Prior to conducting training, Freese and Nichols met with Jordan and Majed Al-Ghafry, also a City Assistant City Manager, to discuss how to incorporate the City’s goals into the training. A top goal for the City was reinforcing the message that Envision can be used on multi-disciplinary projects and creating a common language for City employees and their consultants.

Dallas, partnering with Tarrant Regional Water District, has one Envision-verified project: the Integrated Pipeline Project (Platinum Award). A multi-modal urban roadway project is currently undergoing the verification process.
