PRACT 205: Leading Edge
How do you take LEED further? How can you include innovative strategies in your projects that lead to better performing buildings and advance green building? Learn about the strategies and motivation three projects employed to advance green building implementation beyond standard practice on this pre-recorded webinar. Through presentation and a panel discussion you’ll find out not just what they did but why decisions were made and outcomes achieved. Project team members will highlight how they used an integrative process and engaged others on the team.  Go “behind the scenes” of a project to understand why they were successful with innovative strategies and how you can also be a leader in attaining new goals in your own work.

This session is registered for 1.5 General (not LEED-Specific) GBCI hours as well as 1.5 AIA LU hours.
