Linnean provides sustainability consulting and process management for a retail development located in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. Linnean assisted the project team early in the design process to develop sustainability goals and a roadmap towards accomplishing them. Some of the ambitious targets set include reducing landscape water requirements by 80% and reducing the project’s indoor water consumption by 40%, both from calculated baselines.
Linnean manages and reviews all sustainability-related deliverables from the team of consultants and provides active tracking to ensure that design decisions throughout the project timeline continue to align with the project’s initial goals. The project also includes an objective to optimize outdoor pedestrian comfort. Linnean has conducted extensive outdoor thermal comfort modeling to help guide any design decisions that will affect outdoor comfort, such as building orientation and shading devices.
