Tuesday, November 13 from 3:15 PM to 4:15 PM | 187 « Back

Abstract Text:

Join a panel of sustainability experts for a deep dive on how three rating systems – WELL, the Living Building Challenge, and LEED – address water and human health in buildings. Featuring case studies of iconic and cutting-edge building projects in the Chicago area, this inspiring session will illuminate synergistic design, construction and operations strategies for advancing water quality and human health outcomes. First challenges and opportunities in a 2018 high-rise office renovation pursuing LEED v2009 EB:OM certification; Second the water management goals and strategies of an office project that achieved LEED Platinum under v4 BD+C and Living Building Challenge Petal certification; third explore water and human health outcomes in the first WELL certified project in Chicago. Witness water quality and health throughout the building life cycle, share lessons learned from pursuing multiple sustainability certifications, and address project team strategies for pursuing LEED BD+C and O+M Water Efficiency credits, WELL Building Standard Water Features, and the Living Building Challenge Imperatives. Attendance is critical for practitioners looking to improve water quality and health at the building scale, green building professionals pursuing third party certifications, and water management specialists seeking real-world examples of the built environment’s role in ensuring a sustainable future.
