Online: Designing with Nature – Compost BMP Designs for Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development
February 3 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 amFree
Urban planners, engineers, and architects require standard specifications and design criteria for sustainable, best management practices that can be implemented in the rapidly growing fields of green infrastructure, green building, low-impact development (LID), and sustainable site development. This presentation will give a brief history of erosion control tools before introducing project planners, designers, regulators, and technical professionals to these concepts through as many as 20 different organic, recycled, bio-based BMPs for construction and post-construction stormwater management applications. Building on concepts of biomimicry, natural capital restoration, and ecosystem service enhancement, attendees will learn how environmentally sustainable materials use natural processes to achieve high-performance results, and how these practices can be easily be designed into any plan. ”Designing with Nature” will emphasize how to engage and excel in green infrastructure and building projects from concept to design to implementation.
Applications include sediment control, inlet protection, slope protection, dewatering structures, stormwater reduction, vegetated walls, and bank stabilization.
