Ecological Landscape Alliance is co-hosting this third event in the water series hosted by the Living Future Community of Green Building United.

Stroud Water Research Center’s Moorhead Environmental Complex was completed almost ten years ago. The goal was to manage water on the site in a way that mimics nature — leaving a smaller overall environmental footprint, better protecting White Clay Creek, and acting as both a teaching vehicle and a replicable model for others to follow.

The water management at the Stroud Center has succeeded but there have been challenges to overcome along the way. Join us for a roundtable discussion among the designers, engineers, and client about “getting the water right” at the Moorhead Environmental Complex.

This webinar will begin with a virtual tour of the facility so participants can get acquainted with the project and overall site. Following the virtual tour, we will host a virtual roundtable discussion that will focus on:

  • Successes and failures of collaborative design.
  • Challenges and opportunities of operating a natural system.
  • Lessons learned from the project.
  • Celebrating the influence this project has had on design.

We are excited to be joined by several project team members and clients that were involved in the concept development and facility design. Participants include:

  • Dave Arscott, president, Stroud Water Research Center
  • José Almiñana, principal, Andropogon Associates, Ltd
  • Michele Adams, founder and frincipal, Meliora Design
  • Scott Kelly, co-founder, principal-in-charge, Re:Vision Architecture
