Matrix by Callison streamlines the design process by identifying and selecting the top sustainable design strategies for any given project.
With the Matrix by Callison you can evaluate over 80 specific strategies in five categories to increase design performance.
You can collect and download strategies for your own use by adding them to Your Book.
Matrix by Callison consists of five sustainable design categories:
Energy strategies help to reduce operational energy & costs and increase performance values relative to both: occupant health, safety and productivity and design resilience.
Water strategies help to reduce demand and encourage re-use of non-potable water.
Waste strategies help to reduce, filter and reuse wastewater and solid waste.
Materials strategies help to reduce the environmental impact of building materials and maximize occupant safety.
Design tools such as eco-charrettes, building information modeling (BIM) and energy modeling help maximize a project's potential and assure the design will function as intended. Individual strategies are explained in detail and are cross-referenced with industry links we’ve found relevant.
*For the purposes of this tool, Callison defines sustainable design as an approach to building procurement and other urban development where the goal is to achieve zero net environment impact, as expressed in the AIA 2030 commitment.
