The review of specific projects will look at the current status of two LEED ND pilots and where they are at now, as well as 3 new projects currently going through ND certification. Participants will hear from presenters on some of the opportunities and challenges the ND rating system has presented, along with a focus on some of the most influential credits and prerequisites.
