Green Building Episode 10: How to Create a Certified Wildlife Area Using Sustainable Landscaping

This short film is Episode 10 of Peckham Architecture’s 11-part documentary series on how to construct a green building for energy efficiency and a lower carbon footprint. This episode shows how we created a Certified Wildlife Area at Peckham Architecture’s LEED Platinum home headquarters using low maintenance, sustainable landscaping. We also share erosion control strategies and show the beginnings of our geodesic dome.

Peckham Architecture’s LEED Platinum home headquarters is Missouri’s first Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) Certified building. This project has also been featured in the Columbia Business Times and Columbia Missourian.
