Durable Buildings: Building for Today, Adapting for Tomorrow
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
For today’s buildings to play a role in tomorrow’s communities, they need to be built to last and adaptable, rather than simply demolished. In 2004, the Canada Green Building Council added the Durable Building credit to the LEED program in recognition of problems associated with building performance, sustainability and durability. The objective of this presentation is to explain the credit and demonstrate how to achieve it as an Innovation in Design credit on buildings in the U.S. The presentation will outline, via examples, a sample Durability Plan and tables, the logical steps to develop and confidently achieve this credit as well as focus on both expediting construction and minimizing risk of increasingly complex envelope systems.
