implementing small sustainable changes.
Apr 26, 2021
Two members of the modus studio team, Blair Begnaud and Kiara Luers, discuss ways to implement sustainability in architecture firms and make it more accessible to architects and designers in this Q+A featured in a recent issue of Connection, the Young Architect Forum's quarterly publication.
"When I joined modus studio, I was given the freedom to develop some things to push modus in a greener direction, which eventually evolved into the start of the Sustainability Tracker. This tracker is the office's reference guide to office sustainability goals, green/LEED-approved materials, red-listed materials, solar balancing calculator, simplified green energy codes that list requirements for the various states in which we have projects, local contacts to sustainability resources and consultants, a green design checklist, and a post-occupancy evaluation program."
