About this Event
Looking to network with high-performance building professionals? Looking for all 6 of your LEED-specific CEUs to maintain your professional credential? Confused about the design implications of LEEDv4?

Certifying projects under LEEDv4 is significantly different than certifying projects under LEED 2009. This introductory course reviews the basic differences between LEED2009 and LEEDv4 including upgrades in energy baseline and reconsideration of the Materials and Resources credits. Special emphasis will be provided on the Integrative Process, Regional Priority, and Innovation in Design credits.

This event is the third installment of a 6-part Network & Learn series. 

1 GBCI CE HR-Self Reporting, 1 AIA HSW/SD/LU Hour
