A Pebble in the Pond—The Living Building Challenge Charrette

In the Fall of 2012, Hourigan Construction Company (HCC) invited Virginia Tech's Department of Building Construction, in the Myers Lawson School of Construction, to work with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) on a Living Building Challenge (LBC) facility in Virginia Beach, Va. This facility, the The Brock Environmental Center at Pleasure House Point, required a focus on higher-level factors surrounding constructability, means and methods, logistics, and schedule for a real, high performance building, both in its design and implementation. As a result of this partnership, HCC asked the students from Virginia Tech to research and recommend suitable solutions to the current "state-of-the-art" processes in implementing a sustainable construction site, solutions that meet the spirit of the LBC.
