LUNCHEON MEETING

Human Health and Material Considerations in LEED v4

Thursday December 8th, 2016
11:30 am -1:30 pm

Sandman Hotel
180 West Georgia Street, Vancouver

Presented by Marsha Gentile – Director of Sustainability, Ledcor Construction Limited

Designing for health is becoming an increasingly important part of what it means to be a green building as evidenced by the focus on human health in LEED v4.

Materials and Resources is the most heavily revised category in v4. Design professionals will have to relearn the requirements for credit compliance in order to implement the new strategies effectively.

This session will highlight the key changes and challenges of the Materials & Resources Building Product Disclosure and Optimization (BPDO) credits and Low-emitting Materials requirements.

Presenter Marsha Gentile will highlight lessons learned from real project work in relation to LEED v4.

This session will be of particular interest to Architects, Specification Writers and Construction Product Suppliers.

Participants will receive practical information to support the implementation of LEED v4 by:

  1. Understanding the new requirements of the Materials & Resources BPDO credits
  2. Identifying the additional requirements for Low-emitting Materials credit compliance
  3. Learning how to meet the new credits by using disclosure and transparency tools
    1. Product Category Rules
    2. Life Cycle Assessments
    3. Environmental Product Declarations
    4. Health Product Declarations
