Professionals do not always have the opportunity to engage hands-on with the LEED-EBOM certification process through their work. In addition, professional educational opportunities are often limited to lecture style presentations, Power Point, and panels leaving a gap for individuals to gain practical experience with the implementation of LEED strategies for sustainable operations.
To address this gap, volunteers from BOMA Denver and USGBC Colorado have developed an applied learning program to engage participants in the implementation of the LEED-EBOM certification effort at the History Center Colorado (HCC).
The panel session will tell the story of the experiential education program at HCC and the transition from LEED-NC to LEED-EBOM for an iconic Colorado building. Additionally, the panel composed of volunteers and building staff will reflect on the origination of the program, how it was delivered, why it was important for the building team, what they learned by going through the EBOM process, and how others might replicate this type of programming in the future.
- Describe the experience of a project team in transition from LEED-NC to EBOM
- Explore how experiential learning was applied to a real project for the purpose of professional development
- Develop a timeline for taking a current LEED-NC project through LEED EBOM certification
- Identify LEED EBOM project team roles and responsibilities
