Eco-Balance Planning and New Urbanism
No existing green building certification procedure or environmental impact evaluation tool presently goes beyond a linear approach toward conserving resources. This session explored how, by incorporating Eco-Balance Planning(™) and Design into New Urbanism/Smart Code framework, how we actually determine success through balance, or completion, of the life cycle. Multiple examples of this principle’s application within different transect zones were presented.
