The Green Building Matters Podcast with Charlie Cichetti

May 6, 2021

Sustainability - LEED - WELL Consulting services

I facilitate the process of third party certifications by participating in meetings, being the champion for sustainability and managing the LEED or WELL documentation process. I ask questions, verify that drawings and specifications reflect the desired LEED credits or WELL features pursued and provide coaching to the design team and client throughout design and construction phases leading to the submittal for review to GBCI (Green Business Certification Inc) and ending with the LEED or WELL plaque for numerous projects.


Alicia Ravetto Architect’s designs integrate advanced building technologies with clean renewable energy to achieve more comfortable, durable, affordable, healthy, and environmentally sound buildings and communities.


Show Highlights


  • Alicia’s focus on Passive Solar Design and daylighting. 


  • Opportunities provided by the research triangle of North Carolina.
  • The importance of networking and participating in the US and World GBC to build your community.

“ln green buildings, energy is moving towards positive energy buildings and LEED for communities and cities and also healthy buildings. The WELL Health Rating System has become significant in the workplace now for people that are returning to work.”
