Oklahoma State University Envision trainingOklahoma State University’s IMPACT magazine featured Freese and Nichols’ partnership with the school to prepare engineering students with skills for sustainable design.

Staff including Oklahoma Division Manager Tricia Hatley regularly serve as guest instructors to teach the basics of the Envision Rating System to senior design students at OSU’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

The Envision system, provided by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure, is a tool for evaluating an infrastructure project’s sustainability elements. Instruction provided through the partnership allows students to learn directly from working professionals, and it gets them started on preparing to become credentialed as an Envision Rating Systems Specialist.
