About

Other than LEED-EB: O&M, the LEED rating systems tend to focus on the design and construction phases of the project. Often it’s the Architect, the Engineer, or an independent LEED Consultant that is responsible for collecting LEED documentation and submitting the project for certification. Often project teams forget about the Contractor and some of their responsibilities. One of credits that is often poorly documented is the Construction IAQ Management Plan – During Construction.

This course is for anyone working on a LEED project that is pursuing the Construction IAQ Management Plan – During Construction point.

This course will look at how teams can work together to make sure the correct documentation is collected and that ultimately the plan is being implemented effectively by everyone involved. This will result in fewer questions from reviewers, less backtracking by the project team to collect documentation retroactively, and a less contaminated space for future occupants. This course is applicable to LEED 2009 as well as LEED v4 as this credit has not changed.

As part of this course, after viewing the presentation, read the overview of the IAQ Management Plan and Documentation for the Dr. David Suzuki Public School. Materials in the Additional Resources section to the right or available here.

This course is excellent for contractors working on LEED projects pursuing IEQc3.1. The requirements are well described and clear examples are provided. The SMACCNA guidelines are outlined and defined well, making this course thorough and in-depth enough that contractors new to LEED projects can be brought up to speed.

This is an excellent step by step how to guide to successfully attain LEED Credit IEC 3.1. For any contractor or trades person working on a LEED project, this should be required viewing. Excellent pictures of successful on site implementation make the course very easy to understand. I highly recommend this course if you are unfamiliar with or need to brush up on what is expected during construction to attain this credit.

This is a very detailed course that covers all of the requirements of IEQc3.1. I would highly recommend it for any contractors working on LEED projects. The detailed description of photographic requirements (along with examples of both good and bad documentation) will help tremendously to improve LEED submissions.
