Fall Update

At SPS this fall, all courses, other than pre-established online courses, will be offered face-to-face in our New York City classrooms. Some of these face-to-face courses will be offered in the HyFlex format to ensure that all of our students can make progress toward their degree requirements, if faced with delays due to student visas or vaccination effectiveness wait times.

Sarah Buffaloe

Lecturer; Associate, Built Ecology, WSP USA

Sarah Buffaloe applies holistic thinking and quantified metrics to implement solutions that address the wide range of performance goals every project faces. She enjoys breaking down the complexity of the built environment into actionable solutions by understanding the unique goals and challenges of each project. Her five years specializing in sustainable materials at the U.S Green Building Council combined with her three years of architectural design experience and academic pursuits in material research and LCA give her a unique perspective on building materials and their life cycle and durability. Buffaloe’s passion in sustainability began growing up in a passive solar house in the Denver front range area. She is passionate about understanding building performance through sustainable and building science approaches in order to deliver high quality results. By implementing big picture thinking in combination with material data and modelling, Buffaloe endeavors to use her systems knowledge to make evidence based recommendations. She joined the WSP Washington DC team in November 2014 and resides in Washington DC.
