Sustainable Synergy: How Manufacturers and Scientists Can Collaborate
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 our team explores how scientists can help building product manufacturers meet the challenges of LEED v4 MR credits. We discuss how scientists help manufacturers develop product declarations and documentation for LEED v4 projects. We review the obstacles of achieving the LEED v4 BD+C MR credit: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredients. Finally, we examine free resources that can help manufacturers and AEC firms with LEED projects.
- Describe the challenges that building product manufacturers may encounter contributing to LEED v4 BD+C Materials and Resources credits
- Review common LEED Materials and Resources product disclosures that AEC firms request from building product manufacturers
- Explain the challenges of meeting the LEED v4 BD+C MR credit: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredients with a Health Product Declaration (HPD)
- Discuss free resources that can assist manufacturers with LEED v4 projects
