Green Building & LEED Workshop

WHY GREEN BUILDING?

Green Building respects the environmental impact of the extraction of materials and processes related to their construction and operation, deliver cost savings and improved value to their owners, conserve energy and water consumption, and provide a healthy indoor environment for the people who live and work in them. New Green Building initiative and mandates in the region have provided high-level support for improving design and construction practices and building performance. Professionals are challenged to deliver sustainable buildings in a harsh climate that meet increasingly tougher energy and water efficiency requirements. Developers and owners are generally attracted to the operational savings, lower lifecycle cost, and reduced impact to the environment that they can achieve through Green Building.

  • Architects
