Sustainable Structures

Date: February 16, 2011

Presenter: Duane Palibroda P.Eng., Struct. Eng., LEED AP, Fast + Epp

Designing a sustainable structure is more than simply scoring high on a LEED or Living Building Challenge scorecard. It is about using common sense and doing the right thing. This presentation will look at how LEED influences the structural design of modern day buildings and offer recommendations on how the rating system could be improved to better respond to the realities of modern day design in British Columbia. The presentation also showed recent examples of local building structures to illustrate that sustainable structural design can be achieved with or without LEED.
