About

In this recorded presentation we examine the influence that state, federal, and local government has on LEED site selection. With a growing number of incentive programs and restrictions or regulations LEED site selection is often only a part of a larger compliance scheme. We will look at some of the obstacles and amenities that people face when choosing a building site that includes LEED certification. This presentation will give examples of the hybridization of using government mandated rules, regulations, and incentives along with LEED requirements. Specifically, we will look at EPA rules and LID and how these rules can meld with LEED sustainable sites storm water strategies.

The information provided is helpful for investors, property owners, developers, businesses, commercial organizations, and all LEED professionals
