Implementation in the Design Process:
In Predesign and early design, seek out and evaluate opportunities to locate development in areas where existing infrastructure will support increased densities and where additional development can improve site use. Work with local government units and community representatives to inventory potential sites that will enhance environmental and economic performance for communities and agencies alike.
Consider choosing to develop a site where community revitalization is occurring, provided the required development density is achieved by the project’s completion. Integrate community feedback into density development proposals, working closely with municipalities to coordinate development efforts. Document these development density goals.
Through the design process maximize use of existing infrastructure and target maximum development densities appropriate to the site.
In the construction documents, construction administration, and project buyout, make bidders aware of specific requirements for sustainable development.
