New Sustainable Development Educational Booklet for the Residential Checklist
Check out the new draft Sustainable Development Booklet for the Residential Construction Checklist, a comprehensive guide to sustainable development in Northern Arizona!
The Booklet, written and designed by intern Nathan Hays, details the components of sustainable building listed in the checklist, explaining their relevance to sustainability, how they are accomplished and how points are assigned to those features for projects that are being certified through the Sustainable Building Program.
Sustainable Building Service Provider Directory
We recently began an update of the Sustainable Building Program's Resource Directory. The original directory has been broken into two parts: 1) a directory of sustainable building service providers called the "Sustainable Building Service Provider Directory," and 2) a directory of sustainable building products titled, you guessed it!, the "Sustainable Building Products Directory."
Find a draft of the updated Sustainable Building Service Provider Directory here.
The creation of a Sustainable Building Products Directory is a future project.
The Art of Sustainable Building Display
"The Art of Sustainable Building," a photography exhibit of the 2017 Sustainable Building Award recipients, will be on display at the Flagstaff Mall for a month beginning in early January. It will be the final stop on its almost year-long tour, so stop by if you haven't seen it yet! See the Coconino County Press Release about the display here.
