AIA COTE toolkit: deep-green design

The American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment released a new tool to help firms design high-performance buildings.

The AIA COTE Top Ten Toolkit presents strategies for sustainable design and criteria for evaluating completed projects. The toolkit is at https://tinyurl.com/yabuw4km/.

“The COTE Top Ten Toolkit is a resource, accessible to all architects, that closes the information gap to designing high performing, equitable, beautiful buildings,” said Angela Brooks, COTE chair and principal at Brooks + Scarpa Architects. “The toolkit is designed to provide relevant, general guidance to architects incorporating deep green principles from the beginning of every project.”

AIA said the kit applies to all building projects.
