Louis Berger, a global professional services firm, announced plans to implement the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) Envision sustainable infrastructure rating system in Louis Berger's U.S.-based and international operations.

 

"Envision will help project teams plan, design, construct and operate resilient infrastructure to create stronger, more sustainable communities," said Tom Lewis, president of Louis Berger's U.S.-based operating company. "Envision ensures that we are implementing the correct project in an optimal way to meet the existing and future needs of our clients and the people they serve."

 

In its initial phase, Louis Berger plans to implement Envision across priority regional markets in the U.S., Panama, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Additionally, select employees have begun the Envision assessment process within business units where the rating system can have an immediate impact, including Louis Berger's environmental and disaster management, and power and energy practices.
