Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this thesis is to examine and compare sustainable design methods used in the United States and Chile, focusing on sustainable materials and certification programs, to see if sustainable design methods used in the United States can be implemented in Chile to further its sustainable development. Through literature review, it was determined that while Chile uses the United States-based Leadership in Energy and Design certification program, people are much less familiar with it than in the United States, decreasing its effectiveness in Chile. Chile also has available sustainable materials that are not extensively used. Chile’s sustainable development would benefit from increased use of sustainable materials, like recycled concrete aggregate and wood, and through the use of a more stringent certification program like the Living Building Challenge to provide examples of highly sustainable projects. In both the United States and Chile, promoting and educating society in the need for and feasibility of implementing sustainable design is necessary to further sustainable development.
