Developed kiosks that earned LEED credits for construction projects
- Stakeholder Management
LEED kiosks that provided USGBC green credits for education components of the project, and were enjoyed by tourist visitors to the buildings.
Showing off history, design, & tech
I served as the lead developer on the kiosks for several high-profile buildings in the San Francisco Bay Area and Tahoe region.
As the primary writer, I was tasked with researching building technologies, interviewing engineers and architects to translate their technical know-how to copy for the casual reader.
To achieve this I worked closely with stakeholders, including executives, to understand their needs. I then created a map of the content in order to understand the architecture of the kiosks.
When ready for handoff to design and UX, I organized Page Description Diagrams based on stakeholder needs as a deliverable for designers. One important discovery was that we needed to prioritize navigation, as we believed users would need to navigate quickly to their points of interest in a nonlinear fashion. This was reflected in the PDDs:
The kiosks helped the buildings earn LEED credits; each of them earned LEED Silver CI certification. You can still find them in the Reserve, Farmers Bank, and the Distillery.
