Zofnass and the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure launch Envision framework

Envision rating system

The Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure and the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) have launched Envision, a framework for evaluating infrastructure projects.

The system takes what ISI calls a holistic view, touching on quality of life, resource allocation, impacts on ecosystems and climate, and issues of risk and leadership. Project owners and design teams can use a self-assessment tool or can submit the project for third-party verification, which includes evaluation of the project during three phases: pre-construction, construction, and operations and maintenance.

Future versions of the rating system will also incorporate additional tools for complex or multi-stage projects. Learn more about the Zofnass methodology.
