The video, “A Pebble in the Pond – The Living Building Challenge Charrette,” documents early discussions by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) and its design and construction partners about their vision for the Brock Environmental Center, CBF’s new environmental education center at Pleasure House Point in Virginia Beach.

Representatives from CBF, Hourigan Construction, SmithGroupJJR, the City of Virginia Beach, and the International Living Future Institute explore, and embrace, the “Living Building Challenge,” a comprehensive set of rigorous green building standards. The vision: to create one the most sustainable, eco-friendly buildings possible, an international model for living responsibly with nature and each other.

    Dave WinslowPast member of Lower Shore Trib TeamRetired from wattewaser treatment field (35 years)Important issues related to improving water quality in my view:- Create needed dialogue/education for stakeholders and the public so all views are understood and valued- Deal with accurate data/good science- Keep in mind that the 17 million people living in the Bay watershed are all sources of pollution and need to take owership of their own waste/be willing to adequately fund water quality improvement needs such as wattewaser treatment system upkeep/upgrades, agricultural run off control maintaining farmer’s ability to stay in buisness from a financial standpoint, other.- Value all stakeholders on going efforts to improve water quality.
