This course is specially designed for construction companies, supervision figures, LEED consultants and building owners. It is intended to facilitate projects teams worldwide to implement this prerequisite.

Many European projects face difficulties in decision making, particularly by the building owner, when it comes to Construction phase and LEED certification. Doubts are mainly related to unpreparedness of contracting companies to perform as per sustainability practices, as well as to lack of familiarity with different aspects like Erosion& Sedimentation Control Planning.

Erosion sedimentation control plan requirements in the US are contained in one guiding normative while In Europe those measures are described and regulated in many different directives. Therefore teams are having difficulties in creating documentation in systematic and pragmatic way.

This course is intended to transfer experiences gained by our team in role of LEED consultant and on different projects around Europe.

Beside explanations, regarding requirements in construction phase, practical examples of implementation on European LEED certified project will be given, as well as comparison in some cases with the local normative and regulations, forms, examples of the report, standard modules to use.


  1. Identify the intent, requirements, and strategies for success with LEED in Construction Phase
  2. Become familiar with planning process for Erosion Sedimentation Control plan
  3. Produce correct compliant documentation
  4. Integrate the project with local and/or regional regulations
