American Society of Landscape Architects, San Diego 2012 Design Awards

The highest honor of the San Diego ASLA Chapter, the President's Award, went to the Charles David Keeling Apartments at U.C. San Diego's Revelle College, designed by Spurlock Poirier Landscape Architects. The LEED platinum project features an expansive roof with more than 4,000 plants that capture stormwater and provide thermal insulation. The project is named for the late Scripps Institution of Oceanography professor who created the "Keeling curve," which measures the progressive buildup of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. "We have zero water demand for any irrigation on site," said Martin Poirier, the project's principal landscape architect.

"Since the beginning of LEED, it has been on a growth trajectory," said Theresa Backhus, sites technical specialist in the LEED department at USGBC. This is true even during a down economy. As such, embracing LEED offers more potential work to the qualified contractor.
