- BuildingGreen Talks LEED
As we've seen from the LEED 2012 drafts and public comment periods, major changes are underway for the LEED rating systems. So many changes resulted from the 3rd public comment period, in fact, that USGBC announced a 4th public comment period, to run May 1–15.
At the same time, credit documentation, Reference Guide development, and other education work for LEED 2012 are all underway concurrent with the public comment period and balloting process. According to USGBC, this work is "operating under the guiding principles of creating intuitive and flexible documentation that focuses on collecting key data points for certification, Reference Guide content that enables project team understanding and achievement of requirements, and education for the successful implementation of new and challenging content in LEED 2012."
LEEDuser is excited to offer the general public one of the first opportunities to look "behind the scenes" at development of the nuts-and-bolts documentation pieces that will become the underpinning of LEED 2012. Please join us in this free webcast, with invited presenters from USGBC.
If you're wondering how development of LEED 2012 documentation and educational materials will impact your project, this is a great opportunity to get your questions answered. Chrissy Macken and Doug Gatlin from USGBC (and possibly other guest presenters) will take your questions in an extended session moderated by LEEDuser's Tristan Roberts.
