Union Lake Project – Living Building Challenge

 The purpose of the Living Building Challenge is straightforward – it defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today and acts to diminish the gap between current limits and ideal solutions.

 CR-BPS was contracted directly to provide lead design and consulting services for the Union Lake project in pursuit of the Living Building Challenge, a challenge issued by the International Living Future Institute.  Joining an elite few, this project and process is meant to inspire and educate others to design and build in a way that reconciles the built environment with the natural environment. 

Based on seven petals, Site, Water, Energy, Health, Materials, Equity and Beauty this challenge is immense; however, the Union Lake LBC project is on track to successfully meet all design standards and performance criteria.
