Green Building 2012 Year-end Update
Green building in the U.S. continues to evolve, with a few twists and turns along the way. Courtney France, LEED AP BD+C and Principal of France Sustainable Solutions, and Sean McGuire, MCAA's staff expert on all things green, joined in a discussion of the state of green building at the close of 2012. Major changes in LEED 2012 (LEED v.4) have been delayed and there are other changes all green building professionals will want to be aware of.
Topics covered include:
- Projected timelines for LEED v.4
- New tools and metrics for LEED
- The status of the LEED Accredited Professional Program
- Trends in U.S. green building
- The growth in the market share of other performance standards
- New cost impacts of LEED
- Private and public spending on green building

Did you miss our Webinar on getting and maintaining the LEED Accredited Professional credential?
Many MCAA members who are working on green building projects took the step of becoming a LEED accredited professional. Over the past few years the credential and its continuing education requirements have changed as the credential was strengthened to meet ANSI requirements. The CE requirements can seem complicated, but we have broken out the details to help you understand how the credential program is currently structured and how you can maintain your LEED AP credential.
To understand the current requirements, we asked Courtney France, president of France Sustainable Solutions, to compile the latest information and to conduct a webinar on just this topic. If you missed it, you can access the archived webinar here.
