health and wellness through leed
9:00 AM - 10:45 AM ET/8:00 AM - 9:45 AM CT: LEED Practitioners Panel: Health & Wellness
Identify the most important health and wellness issues that can be addressed through building design, construction, and operations, and apply lessons learned from case examples.
Identify the health and wellness impacts of strategies used to achieve LEED v4 and LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C, and WELL v1 or WELL v2 certification and recognize crosswalks between all systems.
Apply strategies and lessons learned from case examples to improve health and wellness on building projects, and how LEED v4 and LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C reinforces these strategies in practice.
Learn how to submit high-quality documentation demonstrating compliance to achieve credits in LEED v4 and LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C and features in WELL v1 and WELL v2.
The built environment has profound effects on human health and on the world around us. At their worst, buildings contribute to some of the key public health concerns of modern society, from asthma to cancer to obesity. But at their very best, buildings and communities are powerful promoters of health and well-being. LEED practitioners dissect how the thoughtful design, construction and ongoing activities in our buildings and communities can contribute to health and wellbeing outcomes for people. This panel discussion will focus through the lens of LEED v4 and LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C projects, as well as a WELL v1 and WELL v2 projects and how LEED v4.1 alone has evolved and elevated a focus on health and wellness.
This course approved for 1.5 LEED Specific GBCI (BD+C, ID=C, and Green Assoc.) CE hour, 1.5 WELL AP Specific CE hour, and 1.5 AIA LU|HSW.
