Hi all - Just sharing our experience so far with this pilot credit, as required... We're pursuing this credit on a large speculative CS office project in WA. Although the construction team has marked experience with using the EC3 tool, they've still implemented a training program for their project staff, reinforcing the notion that you always have to pay attention, plan early and continue to track. The training covers the EC3 program overview, tracking required, tools available, and required documentation from the construction team. The training also specifically covers EPDs, what to look for and how to compare materials. I am optimistic that this type of early planning and engagement will result in successful achievement of the required 30% reduction.
