EcoCity Workshop #06 Eco-industrial Park Planning & Design
October 7, 10:00 am–12:30 pm
Tracy Casavant, Light House / NISP, Canada
Introduction to eco-industrial park planning, including developments from ‘raw’ land and retrofits / revitalizations. Your city can pursue sustainability while embracing your industrial land uses, not in spite of them! More than just industrial parks with some industrial symbiosis, the concept has evolved to consider the application of ecological design through the entire development cycle – from subdivision planning, to infrastructure and building design and construction, to operations. The first half will cover theory and examples. In the latter half, participants will get to try their hand at planning a new EIP or retrofitting an existing development. Participants are encouraged to table examples from their own cities for the working session.
Each participant is encouraged to bring his/her own laptop with wifi access. Participants wishing to table an industrial park example from their own cities are encouraged to bring relevant maps and photos and to contact the instructor ahead of time.
