Sustainability
Although there are many rating systems that score buildings projects on their environmental sustainability, very few currently address the needs for infrastructure projects as a whole. Envision, a framework developed by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI), uses 60 sustainability criteria and performance objectives to help project teams identify sustainable approaches during planning, design, construction and operation of infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges, pipelines, railways, airports, dams, levees, landfills and water treatment systems. Similar to the US Green Building Council’s LEED rating system, the program is third-party verified and has various levels of achievement.
