Sustainability in construction is a complex issue. As the world becomes more environmentally focused, we’re wrestling with how to implement sustainability in practice. There are so many pieces to the sustainability puzzle, and technology like Autodesk's Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection and Construction Cloud software are key pieces. Buro Happold is known for its technology-forward thinking, and has long been working toward an equitable and green recovery, adapting its business to mitigate climate change and the biodiversity crisis. The firm’s vision for the future is for a regenerative ecosystem—both natural and built—that provides suitable habitats for humans and non-humans alike. In this class, we’ll consider how implementing processes, documentation, and software can help support more sustainable and environmentally friendly design, and we’ll share lessons Buro Happold has learned regarding how to effectively use technology to achieve these aims.
