In December 2018, the AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE) released a new sustainable design tool – the COTE Top Ten Toolkit – along with an easy to use, interactive “Super Spreadsheet.” The tool draws from the collective wisdom of over 20 years of exemplary projects in the COTE Top Ten Award program and gives project teams the resources to create high performing, sustainable designs for all projects.

Ballinger’s David Hincher, AIA, LEED BD+C served on the AIA COTE Top Ten Toolkit Committee, and will be co-presenting a talk about it at the Green Building United 2019 Sustainability Symposium. Architects from small to large firms will demonstrate how the toolkit integrates into a design practice and elevates sustainability.

The event will be held Friday, May 3rd at Penn State at The Navy Yard.
