Summary: The Materials & Resources category of concern as seen the most change in the transition to LEED v4, almost every credit has changed substantially. This presentation is an overview to these changes. It will address each of the new credits in the materials section. It is intended for architects, designers and owners who will be specifying materials or purchasing materials for LEED projects. It is assumed that the attendees will have some prior understanding to the LEED materials credits but it is not required.

Summary: Recent research has found that current work environments are fulfilling the needs for collaboration and communication, but are doing a poor job of providing an acoustical environment free from distractions and conducive for productivity and speech privacy. Participants will leave with an understanding of how to identify interior design factors that will signal the need for sound masking and approaches to address the issues.
Summary: LCA is fast becoming the new benchmark for sustainable design philosophy. Alex Bruce, Renewable Energy Engineer and Co-Founder, eTool will present his experience and insight. The learning outcomes of this presentation will ensure attendees will have a good understanding of what LCA is and how it can be utilized to improve the design outcomes of their next projects.
Summary: The Integrative Design Process is different from the conventional, or linear, design process. A linear process approaches each problem directly and separately, while an integrated process approaches each problem from the varied viewpoints of multiple participants and the issues they represent. LEED Fellow John Boecker describes what the IP credit means, how to take advantage of its opportunities, and engage in a process yielding better building performance than conventional means.
