A "green" building is a building that is energy and resource efficient, non-wasteful and non-polluting, flexible and adaptable for long-term functionality, easy to operate and maintain, and are supportive of the productivity and well being of the occupants. So-called green buildings are constructed or renovated under sustainable development, a design process that reduces the harmful impact on natural resources and looks at the life-cycle costs of the facility.
Historically, how to define and standardize the green building is a long term challenge until the advent of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEEDTM) Green Building Rating System, which is on the minds of many people in the building industry these days, and employers are looking to bolster their green credentials any way possible, including having employees that are LEED accredited.
This 7- hour quick book provides relevant and insightful information on LEED Green Building Rating System. This course will benefit anyone preparing for LEED Professional Accreditation Exam and the experienced building industry practitioners perusing LEED projects in professional service.
Architects, realtors, building owners, facility managers, environmentalists, consulting engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, construction managers, energy auditors, lenders and educators and others perusing LEED AP certification will benefit from this course.
The book includes a multiple-choice quiz consisting of seventy (70) questions at the end to enhance the understanding of course contents.
