Inventorying and Valuing Green Infrastructure Assets – Part 1

September 17, 2020 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Online Webinar
$50 to $75

Green Infrastructure Ontario, in partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), is offering a webinar series focused on green infrastructure (GI) asset management planning.

The first stage of asset management planning is developing an asset register and inventorying assets to understand the state of municipal infrastructure.

This module, presented as two webinars, explores how to set up a green infrastructure classification scheme, and considers which key attributes should be stored within the asset register, including asset quantity, age/condition, and value.

It also delves into detail about different asset valuation approaches and where they are most useful, and identifies some possible software platforms for the asset register.

Participants should note that this content is continued on Webinar 3: Inventorying and valuing green infrastructure assets – Part 2.
