Living Building
Challenge

Re:Vision has been working with the International Living Future Institute’s (ILFI) Living Building Challenge (LBC), Net-Zero Energy (NZE), Net-Zero Carbon (NZC), and Just programs since the organization’s inception in 2006. ILFI’s underlying mission of regenerative design continues to motivate us day in and day out.  Re:Vision takes the lessons learned in designing Living Building Challenge projects and translates them to our work as LBC consultants, Biophilic Design consultants, Material Consultants, and conveners of our local Living Future Community.  We are deeply involved with the ILFI community having participated in over 25 LBC/ILFI projects, having 2 LBC auditors on staff, participating in an ILFI Technical Advisory Group, presenting frequently at virtual events and in-person conferences, and being recognized of our LBC leadership with 2 Living Hero Awards.
