LD07 - LEED v4 O+M: Arc Performance Score and Credit pathways to certification for Existing Buildings

Monday, November 6 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM | 104A « Back

Abstract Text:

This workshop will prepare participants to apply either the credit-based or performance score based approach to LEED O+M. The focus will be on understanding certification options, scoring and data requirements, best practices for sustainable operations, and the benefits of the two approaches to LEED O+M. The performance score approach to LEED O+M utilizes the Arc platform, a simple yet powerful tool to engage building owners, managers and occupants in optimizing building sustainability on an ongoing basis by monitoring energy, water, waste, transportation and human experience. Arc provides performance measurement and benchmarking, as well as a path to initial and ongoing LEED certification. The platform provides insight for building managers and owners to measure ongoing performance via feedback in the form of an up-to-date performance score. The performance score can help leverage existing policies, technology and engage occupants to optimize building performance. The Arc platform makes the invisible actionable by providing a simple building performance context for operational data. Projects teams now have the option to pursue LEED O+M via a traditional, credit based approach or this new, performance score based approach. This workshop will equip attendees to make informed decisions about the best approach for their next LEED O+M project and prepare them to execute on either option.
