This workshop is intended for professionals who are familiar with the basic concepts of the LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations Rating System, but new to implementing it on projects or looking to brush up on implementation best practices. It is appropriate for new LEED APs, as well as those pursuing GBCI’s LEED AP Building Design + Construction credential.

The workshop addresses LEED tools and unique aspects of the New Construction rating system. Workshop participants will discuss the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in the LEED process, as well as strategies for communicating with team members at various stages of that process. Official USGBC LEED Faculty who are LEED and facilitation experts will walk the class through the phases of a typical project, including key decisions that project teams must make and guidance on how to make them. Throughout the day, you will engage with other participants in interactive activities using case examples to enable you to work hands-on with LEED implementation strategies and Rating System tools, including project forms from LEED Online v3. At the end of this workshop, you should be able to apply your newfound knowledge to real-life LEED projects.
