Overview of the Envision™ Sustainable Infrastructure Rating System
Kathryn “Kabby” Jones, P.E., ENV S.P.
The EnvisionTM rating system provides a means to establish goals and document successes in creating sustainable infrastructure projects, much as the well-known LEED® rating system does for buildings. Ms. Jones and Mr. Burfeind will provide an introduction to the purpose, process, metrics, and possibilities of using Envision to guide infrastructure planning, design, and construction toward environmentally and socially sustainable results. The William Jack Hernandez Fish Hatchery, the first project ever to receive an Envision Gold rating, will be discussed.
Kathryn “Kabby” Jones, P.E., ENV S.P., has a strong portfolio of experience in management and execution of water and environmental projects in the private and non-profit sectors. With a combined background in civil engineering and public policy, Ms. Jones has developed consensus-building models for complex water issues and helps clients to bridge the gap between technical analysis and the social and environmental implications of projects.
Scott Burfeind, P.E., ENV S.P., is a transportation project engineer with 10 years of experience on a variety of transportation projects. Prior to becoming credentialed as an Envision Sustainability Professional in 2012, Mr. Burfeind was a contributing author of the Sustainable Highway Evaluation report for MnDOT. This report utilized the FHWA sustainability rating system INVEST, which is based on the same principles as Envision.
