Today, I am a senior engineer for a small civil engineering firm that specializes in sustainable site design
and water resources planning.
is one of the first pilot projects to be certified by the Sustainable Sites Initiative[TM] (SITES[TM]) for its sustainable site design
, construction and maintenance.
Brock is well-known for her expertise in the sustainable site design
Benz, Partner, OLIN Benz has not only contributed enormously to civil engineering and sustainable site design

provides detailed information for architects and builders on materials and products that use resources efficiently, minimize embodied energy and carbon, avoid harming human or environmental health at any phase of their life cycle, and assist with sustainable site design
The certification was based on six categories: water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, sustainable site design
and development, innovative design process, energy design and use of materials and resources.
Tasked with overseeing the LEED process, Technical Designs, Reno, NV, helped to incorporate a variety of sustainable design strategies to achieve the certification, including categories in: Sustainable Site Design
, Reduced Water Use, Optimized Building Energy Performance, Sustainable Building Products, Construction Recycle Management, and Improved Indoor Air Quality.
Among the criteria to earn this distinction is demonstrated proof of sustainable site design
, including a commitment to improved air quality, and water and energy-efficient practices both inside and outside of the building.
