A Green Building Design and Construction: The LEED Implementation Process workshop will be held on Setp. 25, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. The workshop is presented by the U.S. Green Building Council and will be held at UTC in the University Center.
This workshop is intended for professionals who are familiar with the LEED for New Construction or LEED for Core & Shell Rating System, but new to implementing it on projects or looking to brush up on implementation best practices. It is also appropriate for those pursuing GBCI's LEED AP Building Design+Construction credential - and complimentary, discounted exam preparation and practice test resources will be available in summer 2009 for workshop participants pursuing the LEED credential.
An official USGBC LEED faculty member will walk the class through the phases of a typical project, including key decisions that project teams must make and guidance on how to make them. Throughout the day, participants will engage with others in interactive activities that use case examples to enable them to work hands-on with the LEED Rating System.
Participants receive exclusive online access to the reference guide, and the rating system is available for free at www.usgbc.org.
To make the most of this workshop, participants should have the following prior knowledge: experience with building design and construction practices and highlevel competency with the LEED for New Construction and/or LEED Core & Shell Rating System and the LEED Reference Guide for Green Building Design and Construction, 2009 Edition.
This is a 300-level course. The 200-level LEED Core Concepts and Strategies course is strongly recommended as preparation.
The cost is $345 for USGBC national members before Sept. 17 and $375 after Sept. 18; $445 for non-members before Sept. 17 and $495 after Sept. 18 and $150 for full time students.
