Sustainable Master Planning

Featured Projects

Sustainable master planning incorporates the knowledge that successful 'living buildings' need to be located in  'living communities'. Royal Roads University, for example, has commissioned a sustainable campus master plan to reduce vehicular and building energy use, develop renewable energy sources, and restore heritage buildings and site eco-systems. The plan includes creating a campus-wide sewage treatment facility and a biomass generating plant.
