Workshop Title: 
Understanding the LEED v4 Building Design & Construction ( BD + C ) & Rating System

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) includes a variety of rating systems that are recognized as the international mark of excellence for green building in over 132 countries.
LEED addresses the design, construction, operations and maintenance of buildings, in addition to development on community scale.

These full- days, interactive workshop introduces the intent, key elements, main requirements and unique aspects of the Green Building Design and Construction (BD+C) LEED v4 rating systems.

Workshop participants will gain a solid understanding of the core concepts and strategies behind a successful green construction project.

This workshop is not a technical review of every credit. All credits will be addressed but the intent is to teach the concepts and goals of these rating systems through understanding of the prerequisites, key credits, and synergies among the categories.
