Kit Elsworth, LEED AP BD+C

Kit joined Atelier Ten in March 2010 as a technical staff member in the New Haven office and has recently been promoted to Environmental Designer. As a member of the firm’s environmental design and benchmarking practice group, Kit has expertise in the LEED rating system and practice in daylight optimization and water balance studies. He consults on institutional and academic projects and had developed a design standard for the Waterbury Public Schools in order to comply with the Connecticut High Performance Building Standards.

Through a grant from the Atelier Ten Foundation, Kit coordinated the design and building of a rainwater collection system for three of the community gardens run by New Haven Farms, a non-profit corporation that promotes health and community development through urban agriculture. The project provided the farm group with a sustainable method toward irrigation that is also easy to maintain and repair.
