Bright Ideas – Integrative Design and the LEED v4 Rating System
GreenCE’s mission is to support the necessary transition to a sustainable built environment by empowering design professionals to address the environmental, economic, and social impacts of buildings. GreenCE’s course catalog includes LEED exam preparation, continuing education to maintain your AIA or LEED credential, as well as specialty education focused on topics such as ADA/Barrier-Free requirements. We are committed to designing the highest quality continuing education programs in the construction industry.
In this one hour course, the design professional will review implementation strategies for an integrative design and construction process. We also evaluate the new Integrative Process credit in the LEED v4 rating system, and outline the necessary activities to achieve the credit. The design professional will explore collaboration strategies to help control project costs, and discover energy efficiency measures which are enabled through engagement with the building occupants.
