When the Minimum Program Requirements (MPRs) were introduced in 2009, it quickly became clear that MPR #6 would be perhaps the most controversial and the most difficult to comply with. Under the requirements of MPR #6, certified LEED-2009 projects are committed to sharing whole-building energy and water usage data.
Many projects have had questions about how to comply (and if they really have to!), and USGBC has taken time to build out its support for this requirement. Now, the support is there, and LEEDuser is here to help answer your questions--and make MPR #6 easy with this free webcast--register now!
LEEDuser is pleased to offer this presentation by Lauren Riggs, manager of LEED performance at USGBC. This live, half-hour webcast will cover the following topics:
The webcast will cover some of the common problems that project teams face in earning MPR #6, among them:
Lauren shares specific to-do's, case studies, and tips you can use to make this entire process easier for your project team.
Also, bring your MPR #6 questions to the webcast for a Q&A session with Lauren!
LEEDuser will offer 1 CE hour for AIA and LEED AP credential maintenance, to anyone attending the entire webcast. (Please stay to the end for instructions on logging those hours!)
