As of the broadcast date, the number of LEED certified buildings stands at over 800, with more than 6,500 additional buildings in the pipeline for certification. With USGBC’s aggressive goal of having 100,000 certified buildings by 2010 there is no doubt this will be a major impact on the built environment. Sustainable design, construction, and operation will be increasingly requested by building owners.
This broadcast will provide an in-depth review of LEED certified projects in a variety of building types and geographic locations. Unlike the previous LEED-related broadcasts, this ENL provides interviews with various project stakeholders to review LEED credits that were obtained for each project, the original design intent, challenges and lessons learned.
