Discovery Channel’s “Project Earth” technical advisor and star Dr. Jennifer Languell will conduct an intensive workshop on “Complying with Local Government Green Building Requirements” on Wednesday, October 19th, 2016 in Hollywood, Fla.
Local governments are increasingly mandating that new construction is certified by a national or state recognized green building program. Whether it is concern over climate change and community resiliency, or just encouraging informed decisions to reduce energy and water demand, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and decrease other harmful environmental impacts, many South Florida local governments such as Hallandale, Hollywood, the city of Miami (Miami-21 Ordinance) and Miami Beach are taking this route.
Certification program comparisons will include: LEED to FGBC commercial and high-rise standards, Green Globes compared to LEED; and NGBS Multi-Family Building compared to LEED 2009 with notes about LEED v4 that will be required starting October 31, 2016.
This workshop will help you understand the government and green program requirements, give you a comparative overview each certification program, provide insights on analyzing costs and benefits of each program, and demonstrate how the Florida Green Building Coalition’s climate-specific standards can work for your project and offer significant cost savings.
Date: Wednesday, Oct. 19th, 2016 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
