Rainwater Management For LEED v4.1 Projects
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 course, we describe how design professionals can achieve the LEED v4.1 BD+C and O+M Rainwater Management Credit. In addition, we discuss green infrastructure and low-impact development strategies and how they can help for project sites.
- Review how green infrastructure and low-impact development strategies integrate with the LEED v4.1 BD+C and O+M Rainwater Management Credit to protect the environment and site occupants
- Describe how design professionals can achieve the LEED v4.1 BD+C and O+M Rainwater Management Credit and design a safe site for occupants
- Discuss the EPA’s Technical Guidance on Implementing the Stormwater Runoff Requirements for Federal Projects and how it integrates with the LEED v4.1 BD+C and O+M Rainwater Management Credit
