Leveraging LEED Design Strategies for WELL
Can you demonstrate both environmental and health performance in a meaningful way?
USGBC and IWBI are beginning to see eye to eye across a range of focus areas. Knowing how to leverage each in a mutually beneficial way is the key to driving successful integration of a dual certification approach.
Join LEEDuser’s special guest, Mohhamad Abbasi of WSP, for a valuable webinar on how LEED and WELL mesh—and how they don’t. Explore the nuances of achieving both LEED and WELL certifications for new construction projects. Then dive into details of how particular prerequisites and credits in the LEED Materials & Resources & Indoor Environment Quality categories align with preconditions and optimizations in the WELL Materials & Air concepts.
Viewers of this on-demand webinar will be armed with a series of ‘credit-feature crosswalks’ that synthesize the consistencies and highlight the key differences between LEED and WELL requirements related to healthy materials and indoor air quality.
