A New Plan for Building Green

LEED is not always suited to campus-wide, long-term perspectives on building development and carbon emissions reductions. It can often result in a more expensive process that misses the mark on achieving realized savings, leading universities to shift away from LEED. This session will focus on the next step in the evolution of green building and provide a comprehensive sustainability framework for responsible development with a holistic view of the campus and community wellbeing. Come learn how you can use this improved planning process for green building by outlining rigorous sustainable design standards and integrating operational tracking to examine facility performance.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify the limitations of the LEED rating system in achieving camps-wide sustainability goals.
  2. Explain how to develop a process that holistically integrates sustainability into planning campus buildings.
  3. Determine how to create rigorous sustainable design metrics in lieu of LEED for new buildings and major renovations.
  4. Confirm operational success or shortcomings of building performance through simple metering and tracking.
