Design Implementation - 5.5 PDH


Design Implementation - 5.5 PDH

Material selection, specifications, and maintenance guidelines allow landscape architects to ensure that their designs are faithfully and successfully brought to life. How can landscape architects be empowered in the studio and on the construction site? How do client needs and wishes influence design choices and outcomes? Sessions in this package of 2021 conference recordings share tools and methods for communicating design intent through successful documentation, innovative strategies, and new technologies for the design, construction, and post-construction life of projects.

175 Years: Soil Trends & Maintenance at the Smithsonian Gardens - 1.25 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Expiration Date: Dec 31, 2026

Encompassing 59 acres, the soils surrounding the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C. uniquely reflect planting soil trends of the last century, creating a patchwork of soil types in a small footprint. Studying these landscapes, we present the impact of various soil types and a resilient soils approach for the future.

Mitigating the Carbon Footprint of Concrete - 1.25 PDH (LA CES/HSW) / 1.0 GBCI SITES-Specific CE

Expiration Date: Dec 31, 2026

The carbon footprint from the billions of tons of concrete placed each year is substantial, resulting in nearly 8% of total global emissions. This session will provide attendees with tools to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete through use of high-volume cement substitutes, concrete mix optimization, and carbon sequestering technologies.

The GBCI course ID for this course is 920025327, providing SITES-specific CE hours required to maintain SITES AP credentials. Participants will need to pass the exam at the end of the presentation in order to receive a certificate of completion. Participants will need to self-report CE hours through their credentials account on https://sitesonline.usgbc.org.
