LEED AP BD+C, O+M and ID+C holders will have the opportunity to earn LEED-specific continuing education (CE) credits toward their credential maintenance requirements, and industry practitioners will have in-depth discussion on the technical applications of the credits. LEED AP credential holders highly encouraged to attend.

Masterclass No. 2: "Diving into LEED v4: Foundations of Integrative Design - Integrative Process Credit"
Note: Please plan to arrive by 11:50 a.m., since the class will start at 12 p.m.

Are you a practitioner in LEED design and would like to refresh knowledge, or dip deeper into the Integrative Process? Are you looking to have meaningful discussions on the credit use and achievement in the LEED certification process with practitioners in new construction or commercial interiors? This course offers a great learning curve for LEED BD+C, LEED ID+C and LEED WELL professionals.

This class will take a deep dive into the Integrative Process, a team strategy which is integral to the LEED BD+C, ID+C, O+M systems, as well as the WELL Building Standard. The speakers will present on the intent and importance of this credit to the general overall success of sustainable projects, including overlap and synergies between green and wellbeing integrative processes. The session will delve into the credit requirements, and how the attainment of these might be enhanced through the integrative process, related to discovery and implementation for both energy-related systems and water-related systems will also be covered. Following an in-depth review of the credit requirements and documentation items, the team will present some best practices for achieving this credit along with some case studies of methods taken on real projects.
