LEED and Lots

We are working with a general contrasheville site development  checking solar gainactor in Asheville, NC who plans to build a LEED certified home on an outstanding lot she discovered, so we are especially excited about RLI's upcoming March 3, 2010 webinar that all of us have been invited to attend.

 It offers useful  information about sustainable development including one of my favorite topics: site development.

Site analyses are important no matter what you are building or where you live.They are especially important in the mountains. So, here in Asheville NC sustainable development is "the thing".

For the builder/owner of a LEED Certified home, taking the following into account is really  important:

Hydrology
Soils
Slopes
Solar aspect and building orientation
Microclimate(s)
Vegetation
Wildlife
Scenic qualities
Cultural features

As a land specialist and broker of large and small tracts of land for sale, I am appreciative of what site analyses do for buyers, sellers and for me. Combined with the building site's overall ecological patterns a site analyses provides essential information that helps all of us make wise choices.
