Raising Green Building Awareness Through Occupant Engagement
Since 1992, building owners, developers, design firms, and construction managers have hired Earthly Ideas to assist in the design, renovation, construction, and operation of high performance buildings. We ground our green building consulting practice in the fact that knowledge is power and are dedicated to supporting commercial, institutional, and industrial project teams with the information, resources, and skills needed to produce these facilities.
Want your building occupants to have a greater understanding of the green building features you designed – and achieve an innovation credit? A look at LI ID#3115 will illustrate how to develop the title and intent, environmental benefits, requirements, and approaches and strategies when utilizing a LEED project as a teaching tool. We review several case studies and we also discover how the applicability matrix of the LEED Interpretations and Addenda Database for this LI can be applied to LEED CI and EBOM rating systems.
