October 24 - October 30, 2011

A Durability + Design story last week reported on a survey of design professionals about green building and sustainable design, and the survey included a question about the concept of a “durability index.” What is your opinion on such an idea?

Much needed, I’m all for it
Needed, but too difficult to formulate
Good idea, but should be established separate of any “green” rating system or program
Not practical, would complicate design process
Other (please comment)
