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.
