Re: P2 Opportunities in New Construction

Babette --

Take a look at:


Pacific Northwest National Lab (my employer) has developed a design methodology 
and training for US Dept of Energy which is applied to the design of new 
buildings and facilities. This web site includes information on these 
techniques, references to other DfE and construction resources, and downloadable
software for identifying potential design strategies which will help in doing P2
during construction and the latter stages of building operation and 
decommissioning (when the majority of environmental impacts occur). 

Also, you might want to contact either of the two following individuals, who do 
a lot of consulting in this field and have developed guidebooks on P2 during 
construction phases:

        (206) 842-8717 fax

I beleive that they are currently planning a major conference on the topic for 
later this fall, so it might be worth getting in touch with one or the other.

Hope this helps.
