Using Envision as an Umbrella Framework: Applications for Large Mixed-Use Transit Projects
Presented by: Teresa C. Vangeli, WSP, and Zachary Youngerman, WSP

Sustainable design has come a long way in the past decade. Many transportation projects include a mix of project types from buildings to stormwater systems to parks and parking garages. WSP recommends Envision as a framework with a wide scope that encompasses all elements of the project site. The rating systems for single elements of larger projects can operate under the Envision umbrella. The presenter will share natural synergies that arise and will also note the pitfalls to avoid.

Consider the importance of infrastructure in our daily lives. Despite the obvious need for infrastructure and the many benefits it provides, historically it is overlooked and underfunded until it breaks down or service is disrupted. How can infrastructure industry professionals shift this mindset to garner more support of sustainable projects? During this webinar, ISI’s Director of Communications, Dyan Lee, and Sustainability Consultant Jennifer Ninete, ENV SP, STP, will share tips for how the infrastructure industry can rewrite the narrative on what makes an infrastructure project valuable. Jennifer will specifically discuss how important communication is on verification of projects.

In this webinar we will use project examples to discuss processes and techniques for implementing Envision on projects with alternative delivery methods to support more sustainable and resilient outcomes.
On April 22, 2020, ISI’s President & CEO, Anthony Kane, held a webinar, discussing how an increasing number of public and private sector stakeholders are using Envision to plan, design, and deliver more sustainable infrastructure by setting standards, establishing policies, and pursuing verification. The purpose of this webinar is to provide a deeper understanding of practical applications of the Envision framework. Examples will be presented to inspire new approaches that can be strategically integrated into everyday operations. Look for the recording of this webinar on your ISI account.
