WE BELIEVE IN sustainability

At Build Urban we commit every day to designing and building environmentally friendly homes.  We look at site and water protection, energy efficiency, health and indoor air quality, and materials efficiency.  Building sustainable homes helps conserve natural resources, saves money on operating and home maintenance costs, creates healthier homes and habitat and reduces carbon footprints – by reducing energy and water usage and conserving resources, we can all have less impact on our planet.

Design Review of Living Building Program                 
SDCI team does review the living building pilot projects and there is no blanket approval. At this Eearly Design Guidance stage the information is very conceptual and enrollment in the pilot does not occur until a completed Master Use Permit (MUP) is made. During the MUP phase we have a formal sustainability review We work with International Living Futures Institute (the Living Building Challenge certification organization) and the development team to ensure the project is progressing towards the end goal. The attached document provides a summary of what we require to be shown on plans and what documents are required during the permit process.
