GeoDesigning with Nature using Economics GIS creates maps and tools to that make designing at scale easy by putting the infrastructure and building decisions in context on a map to answer the question “what’s the best location”. TBL-CBA has taken the same starting...
All governments, infrastructure planners, designers and decision makers need to adopt a triple bottom line cost benefit analysis approach for building and infrastructure decisions to ensure that users, the environment and all stakeholders are best served by a post-pandemic stimulus package.
As we re-build the economy, we need to make sure that what we build reflects our values and that “public values help shape private value”. We need Triple Bottom Line Costs Benefit Analysis (TBL-CBA) to measure value and set priorities.
It has been noted that despite the pandemic, the natural world doesn’t care and perhaps even doing better since the economy has been shuttered. As we re-build we need to remember that the economy serves us, economic growth is not an end in and of itself.
It is becoming increasingly clear that people want a different “normal” after the pandemic. As governments spend, we hope we take the opportunity to think, debate, review, and plan for a smart recovery to a better quality of life. Autocase’s post-pandemic call to arms – Part 1
When showing Autocase’s full carbon story, we are often asked about social cost of carbon.
A Call To Arms for the Architecture, Engineering, and Sustainability Community to Guide Stimulus Spending
My call to arms is that architects, engineers and other sustainability professionals need to gird themselves with the weapons of training and tools to run the numbers to avoid previous stimulus program mis-steps. Only then will we be able to make rational and informed decisions for the public good. The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure is providing the venue and tools to help guide how to ensure projects are done right and that the right projects are done.
Since the first method for evaluating building sustainability, in 1975, till today, more than six hundred methods have been developed. Now we are converging on one standard.
Autocase allows for unit conversions of inputs – on the fly.
Two big trends will dominate the future for architects, engineers, and planners.
