SuN LIVING: Developing Neighbourhoods with a One Planet Footprint by Wil Mayhew

Author and Sustainability expert Wil Mayhew has integrated the NCI Charrette System™ Course into the sustainable neighbourhood (SuN) process that was applied to the planning and design of Emerald Hills Urban Village (EHUV), a sustainable neighbourhood development in Strathcona County, Alberta. The NCI course book, The Charrette Handbook, was also used as a major reference source in his book SuN LIVING: Developing Neighbourhoods with a One Planet Footprint which provides the “how-to” plan and design truly sustainable neighbourhoods and is built around the EHUV case study, a real-world project currently under construction in Alberta.  To learn more about this case study and Wil Mayhew’s terrific book, SuN Living go here.
