Updated! LEED 2009 For Food Service Consultants-What counts, What doesn't
C (2.5 CEU)
Since LEED 2009 kicked off Spring, 2009, it has undergone SEVERAL ground-breaking updates and addenda. LEED for Retail and LEED for Healthcare are now passed and active. AND, there is more foodservice than ever. Ware washing makes a significant contribution to earning Innovation in Design credits and can make or break others, now that process water has more consideration. Ware washing & waste equipment affects all utilities plus water, sewage and HVAC. The standards for warewashing vary among tracks, adding to the confusion. Did you know that there are now pulper/collector/trough water consumption standards? Understanding where your clients can earn LEED credits gives the consultant a COMPETITIVE EDGE over other consultants who are either catching up or who have never made time to master LEED.
For a 2 1/2 hour investment, including lunch, "LEED for Foodservice Consultants, What Counts, What Doesn't" will get you current in a HURRY.
