Sustainable, Resilient, and Inclusive Design

Campus Planning & Capital Projects oversees Sustainable, Resilient, and Inclusive, SRI, Design of new, remodeling, and site projects as part of a larger effort towards a more sustainable environment today and for future generations. We use a holistic approach by evaluating multiple measures for applicability to capital projects as they are relevant to varying project needs and missions.  The Wisconsin Division of Facilities Development & Management (DFDM) Sustainability Guidelines are based on the American Institute of Architect’s (AIA) Framework for Design Excellence and adapted for use on DFDM projects to align with Governor Evers Executive Order #38 to “Develop energy efficiency, sustainability and renewable energy guidelines for all new and existing state facilities, office buildings, and complexes.”  The current DFDM Guidelines were adopted in 2020, adding resilient and inclusive measures to the scope.  Prior DFDM sustainability guidelines aligned with LEED Silver.

Features of Sustainable, Resilient, and Inclusive Design include Integration, Community, Walkable, Ecology, Water, Economy, Wellness, Resources, Change, and Discovery
