LEED User Groups are participant-driven, peer networks that share a common goal of working together to elevate green building and lead the way for greater LEED adoption and efficiency within their respective industries. LEED User Groups identify, share and publicize best practices related to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of green buildings. Participants are actively committed to making sustainability and LEED more applicable to their business and more relatable to their customers and stakeholders. This is an opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities in their working area.
Peter Whitred, Sr. Manager of Green Building Programs for the CaGBC and Colleen Loader, Manager of Sites, Water & Material will be joining us via teleconference to briefly introduce and highlight some of the changes associated with the LEED v4.1 Beta Rating Systems and participate in the discussion and answer questions.
Please note that this session of the LEED Users Group will be entirely online based through the use of Adobe Connect and will be specifically discussing Saskatchewan based projects.
