LEED v4.1 EBOM Technical Workshop

Hosted in partnership with USGBC West North Central Region.

LEED and Existing Buildings: Understanding certification, performance and LEED v4.1 Operations and Maintenance.

This virtual workshop will provide participants with a deep look into LEED v4.1 O+M and the information needed to pursue certification. The focus will be on understanding certification options, best practices for sustainable operations and maintenance, and the new options available through the LEED v4.1 beta using the Arc platform.

In a world that is constantly evolving, one of the hallmarks of LEED is “continuous improvement.” With each new version, LEED raises the bar on the green building industry with an outcome-based approach to LEED certification. The newest update to the LEED rating systems, LEED v4.1, represents a series of upgrades that will update the referenced standards to encourage leadership, respond to market feedback, and make the LEED rating system more accessible than ever before.

We will share success stories in regional case studies of certification to inspire users that you too can bring LEED to your portfolio of existing buildings.

You Light Up My Life, But is That a Good Thing?

For most of us, light has been something we’ve always controlled with a simple flip of the switch. The convenience of light on demand lengthened our days, and shortened our nights. But today, we are beginning to realize light affects us in more ways than we could have imagined just a few short years ago.

In this course, we will examine the non-visual impact of light in our lives and how this knowledge is changing the way we view light in our world.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Discuss and better understand the science of light.
  • Investigate the non-visual impact light plays in our lives, including on circadian rhythms
  • Review the WELL Building Standard and LRC Circadian Stimulus as it relates to lighting
  • Identify trends around dynamic lighting

SPEAKER
Eric J. Haugaard
Director of Product Technology, Cree Lighting
Eric Haugaard is the Director of Product Technology for Cree Lighting. His career of 33 years includes a variety of positions primarily focused on advanced lighting systems development. Eric holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, with Post-Baccalaureate Program studies completed at NASA/Ames Research Center.  He holds 48 US and 16 foreign patents related to lighting technology.
