The deadline to register a project to the pilot phase of the Living Architecture Performance Tool (LAPT) is rapidly approaching. Participants that register by September 14 will get access to an exclusive workshop on September 24 in Brooklyn, NY.
The LAPT is a rating system and resource, designed to certify that green roofs and walls are designed to achieve certain measurable and replicable performance benefits, so that they can be funded, designed, installed, and maintained with a higher degree of confidence.
Providing performance benchmarks will increase the efficacy of living infrastructure and bolster industry-wide credibility. Designers, building owners, and maintenance professionals can use the LAPT to optimize the range of benefits possible from their projects, while policy makers can also use the tool to maximize public benefits and create effective policies for living architecture.
The exclusive workshop in Brooklyn on September 24 will be facilitated by LAPT co-chair David Yocca, as well as LAPT Program Manager Rohan Lilauwala. The workshop is being held as part of the CitiesAlive 16th Annual Green Roof and Wall Conference (September 24-27, Brooklyn, NY)
