GOALS for
Today’s
Session:
1. Need for Envision (Why?)
2. Broad Overview of Envision
(What?)
3. Understand how Envision can
benefit Billings (How?)
BIG IDEA: Envision helps us to
not only build the project right,
but helps us build the right
project.
Infrastructure provides:
IMPORTANCE OF
INFRASTRUCTURE • Physical Security (Food,
Water, Shelter, Access to
Healthcare)
• Basis for Economic Growth
• Communication
• Convenience
• Freedom (Recreation, Access)

THE REALITIES
OF THE WORLD
IN WHICH WE
LIVE
A NEW FACT OF
LIFE
• Population Growth
• Diminished Resources
• Climate Change
• Infrastructure Must be Sustainable
WHAT DO WE MEAN
BY “SUSTAINABLE”?
DIMENSIONS OF A
PROJECTS SUCCESS
THE ENVISION™ RATING SYSTEM
WHAT IS ENVISION™?
Envision™ is a tool, which itself is part of a larger system, developed to
help evaluate the sustainability of civil infrastructure.
This system includes:
•
•
•
•
•
A self assessment checklist
The Envision™ Rating System
A credential program for individuals
A Project Evaluation and Verification Program
A Recognition Program for Sustainable Infrastructure
PHASE TOOLKITS
COMPANION TOOLS
WHAT MAKES
ENVISION™ UNIQUE?
• Applies to all civil infrastructure
• Includes design, planning, construction
and maintenance elements
• Applicable at any point in an infrastructure
project's life cycle
• Speaks to the triple bottom line: social,
economic and environmental goals
• It is designed to keep pace with a
changing concept of sustainability
- Economic Optimization Tool,
- Construction and O&M Phases

HDR SUBMITTED THE FIRST EVER
ENVISION PROJECT IN APRIL 2013
•
Alaska’s new William Jack
Hernandez Sport Fish
Hatchery in a one-of-a-kind
facility for the production of
salmon and trout.
•
The project marks the
largest ever application of
intensive recirculation
technology by a public
agency to dramatically
reduce water and energy
consumption. Reduce
necessity to heat water.
•
Delivered on a tight
schedule through an
integrated CM/GC team,
the facility accommodates
100,000 visitors per year.
