September 21, 2018, 6:00 PM @ ABSS Central Office
The City of Burlington will host the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) from Wednesday, September 19th through Friday, September 21st.
Burlington was one of a select few that were chosen in the nation for this grant. The SDAT program is a three-day program designed to help communities develop a vision for a sustainable future and a realistic, attainable roadmap for the reuse of significant property in their community. The program will bring teams of experts including architects, urban designers, landscape architects, planners, economists, and others to work with Burlington leaders, stakeholders, and citizens. The result will be a broad assessment that helps frame a plan for reuse of the Western Electric Plant in Burlington.
The SDAT will provide an early capstone of the research and conclusions of the visit. This public event will be held at ABSS Central Office Auditorium, located at 1712 Vaughn Road, Burlington, NC 27217.
