LEED v4 Continuing Education Blitz

Join USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter for a full-day Continuing Education Blitz focused on LEED v4!

LEED users have the option to register projects under the LEED 2009 rating system until October 31, 2016. Beginning November 1, 2016, all projects must be registered under LEED v4. Attending the March 1st Continuing Education Blitz is a great way to begin preparing for this shift!

LEED v4 raises the bar – as LEED was designed to do with every update, guiding the market towards more environmentally sustainable strategies and decisions, and responding to continuous advances in technology. But this time, the bar is a lot higher. LEED v4 changes the way project teams think, integrate, plan, execute, and operate their buildings.

From new credit categories (Integrated Design and Location and Linkages) to new prerequisites (Construction & Demolition Waste plan, Water Use, and Building Level Energy Metering) to increased performance benchmarks, it will be more difficult to achieve certification using LEEDv4 and it will require more intentional planning and a truly integrated project team.

LEED v4 will have the biggest impact on CO2 emissions of any rating system developed by USGBC and it takes an unprecedented stand on human health. In particular, energy performance minimums have significantly increased. And the materials credits have been completely overhauled with a focus on transparency and life cycle analysis.
