GREEN BUILDING AND LEED

Why Green Building?


Green buildings respect the environmental impact of the extraction of materials and processes related to their construction and operation, deliver cost savings and improved value to their owners, conserve energy and water consumption, and provide a healthy indoor environment for the people who live and work in them. New green building initiatives and mandates in the region have provided high-level support for improving design and construction practices and building performance. Professionals are challenged to deliver sustainable buildings in a harsh climate that meet increasingly tougher energy and water efficiency requirements. Developers and owners are generally attracted to the operational savings, lower lifecycle cost, and reduced impact to the environment that they can achieve through Green Building.

Who should attend?

All industry professionals seeking to work on Green projects, especially those seeking to become LEED professionals (LEED Green Associates and/or LEED AP BD+C) and/or work on LEED 2010 projects, including, but not limited to, the following: architects, engineers, contractors, consultants, developers, building owners, client representatives, environmental, health and safety managers, sustainability managers, and facility managers.

Want to reduce your buildings energy use by 30-50%, waste output by 70%, and water usage by 40%? Go Green!
