About this Event:
Join us for an informative presentation by Jorge Lopez on the successful and challenging efforts to build green in Mexico. A passive ventilated space, designed within a building science scheme offers great opportunities and challenges to comply with both the required indoor air quality and a low energy use required to achieve a LEED v4 Platinum certification. The case study of an office space in Gudalajara, Mexico, one of first 10 spaces in North America certified as LEED® ID+C: Commercial Interiors, v4, Platinum level, will be presented, explaining the LEED v4 compliance and documentation.
