Getting started on any project can be daunting, but working with experts can make the process smoother. Colby College reached out for insight on the multi-year SITES certification process for its $200 million Athletic Complex. As the SITES expert and advisor on the project team, Studioverde began with an introductory workshop on the benefits of SITES, which informed Colby’s decision on pursuing SITES certification.
Next, Studioverde led the project team through a workshop on how to address one of the most important – and for some, challenging – aspects: SITES Prerequisite 2.2 – Pre-Design Assessment + Planning. Our session included examples and explanations for each specific piece of documentation, which provided all of the team members with confidence to move ahead with the project. As one consultant shared, “Studioverde made the SITES process seem so straightforward, unlike our experience with rating systems consultants in the past.”
As a result of Studioverde’s deep SITES understanding, creative problem-solving approach, and working familiarity with GBCI senior staff, we were successful in securing GBCI confirmation that three critical SITES Prerequisites would be accepted.
