Architects can download a copy of the toolkit online.

WASHINGTON – Dec. 14, 2018 - The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on the Environment (COTE) is releasing a new tool that can help architecture firms design high-performance building.

The AIA COTE® Top Ten Toolkit presents curated, concise and effective strategies for achieving sustainable designs and provides criteria for evaluating a project after it is built. Applying the kit's resources during the design process allows for architects to obtain the tool's full potential. Additionally, it can help start a dialogue that facilitates a more deeply integrated, visually rich design solution.

"The COTE Top Ten Toolkit is a resource, accessible to all architects, that closes the information gap to designing high performing, equitable, beautiful buildings," noted Angela Brooks, FAIA, COTE chair and Principal at Brooks + Scarpa Architects Inc. "The toolkit is designed to provide relevant, general guidance to architects incorporating deep green principles from the beginning of every project." 

Overall, the kit can assist all building projects in achieving better sustainability outcomes. It also consolidates the most current, useful, and objective resources for architects.

AIA is committed to sustainability in the built environment and encourages all architects to participate in the 2030 Commitment.

Architects can access the AIA COTE Top Ten Toolkit on AIA's website.
