USGBC: LEED Project Management Workshop – USGBC Northern California

June 5, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm PDT

Successfully managing the LEED documentation process requires specific knowledge, tools and skills that are not covered in the LEED Reference Manual. This condensed, online training is based off of the LEED Project Management course that GreenStep developed and teaches through UC Berkeley. It is designed for professionals who are somewhat familiar with the LEED Rating System, but who are looking to go beyond the basics to gain a deeper understanding of the unique processes involved with managing a LEED project, including documenting several of the most common credits from start to finish.

You’ll learn how to facilitate an eco-charrette, navigate LEED Online, troubleshoot potential setbacks, develop useful tools for managing the documentation process and evaluate the cost to benefit ratio of various design strategies. As part of this interactive virtual workshop, participants will work through several detailed credit calculations.

The ultimate goal of our LEED Project Management workshop is to empower you with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to make an immediate impact on future LEED projects.
