The Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES) Announcement

      October 27, 2010


The Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES) announced the selection of HELIX Environmental Planning’s Headquarters Landscape Conversion project (HELIXs Landscape Conversion) as one of the first landscapes to participate in a new program testing the nations first rating system for green landscape design, construction and maintenance.

HELIXs Landscape Conversion will join more than 150 other projects from 34 states as well as from Canada, Iceland and Spain as part of an international pilot project program to evaluate the new SITES rating system for sustainable landscapes, with and without buildings. Sustainable landscapes can clean water, reduce pollution and restore habitats, while providing significant economic and social benefits to land owners and municipalities.
