The Envision rating system helped a Freese and Nichols design team maximize the sustainability of a road retrofit in Dallas. The team used low-impact design strategies to plan the retrofit and then used Envision to see how the retrofit could become more sustainable. Envision "allowed the project team to craft the project for maximum sustainable performance by taking advantage of the objective and subjective criteria brought forth by the system." The retrofit won the North Texas Land/Water Sustainability Forum Low Impact Design competition.
