Site Optimization

Careful consideration of a building site will: minimize the disturbance on the land, protect current vegetation, mitigate the need for additional infrastructure, and provide opportunities for daylighting, solar heat gain, and natural shading and ventilation. It is ideal to select a site where existing community resources such as: schools, shopping, employment, entertainment, public transit routes, and existing infrastructure (roads, sidewalks, energy, sewers and water supply, and open green space) are accessible.
