Introduction to the Changes in LEED v4

This course covers the changes in LEED v4 from previous versions and discusses how the new rating system will improve current green building practices in Canada. During the course, we discuss the flexibility in LEED v4 and its applicability to an expanded range of building types. We also explore common themes in the new rating system, synergies within the system, and the new performance requirements. Participants learn about the new integrative process credit as well as the enhanced LEED v4 systems goals and their impact on LEED point allocation. After this workshop, you should be able to communicate effectively to colleagues and clients about some of the major changes occurring in LEED v4. Please note that this course is not a technical review course and it does not delve into each credit of the rating system.
