Explore green design and construction principles behind high-performance buildings

During this presentation, we will explore the green design and construction principles behind high-performance buildings, more specifically the different product green certificates and how they connect with the various green building certification systems.  This will lead us into a deeper dive of LEED certification.

Finally, we will see how the choices made by architects and engineers can have an impact on climate change and products available to minimize the building’s ecological footprint.
