Starting any project can be daunting, but working with experts can make the process smoother. Colby College reached out to Studioverde 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, informing Colby’s decision on proceed with SITES certification, in addition to LEED certification.
Next, Studioverde led the 20-person project team through a Pre-Design Assessment + Planning (P2.2) workshop to address one of the most critical and challenging certification process requirements. Studioverde provided detailed strategies and ways to streamline documentation that was well-received by the project team. One key team member shared, “Studioverde made the SITES process so straightforward, unlike our previous experience with LEED rating system consultants.”
