Come join SAR+, OZ Architecture, Cuningham Group and Group14 Engineering as we discuss the Living Building Challenge and how we can help bring it to life in Denver at this Thursday’s Sustainable Denver Summit.

Bringing the Living Building Challenge to Life in Denver | 11:15am – 12:10pm

This presentation will provide an overview of the Living Building Challenge (LBC), a far-reaching performance standard that goes beyond checklists seen in other metrics and focus on what ‘good’ looks like in terms of resource use, materials, energy consumption and occupant experience. We will explore the fundamentals of this innovative standard, review examples of Living Buildings, and focus a portion of the presentation on the details of the newly introduced CORE certification. Group 14 will moderate a discussion with three Denver architecture firms (SAR+, Oz, and Cuningham) with goals to bring this type of project to realization. They will talk about the challenges and opportunities of this approach and the realities of achieving it in Denver.
