Join the USGBC Triangle Branch as we look at an example of construction waste diversion, focusing on the deconstruction of NC State's Harrelson Hall. A spectacular show of landfill diversion, 95 percent of the building's non-hazardous materials were recycled. Liz Bowen, Program Coordinator for the NC State Sustainability Office and the LEED Administrator for all NCSU projects, will walk us through the process, challenges and opportunities faced in this mammoth undertaking.
The end of this session will circle back around to changes to the Waste Management Credits for LEED v4, which is now fully underway for all new registered projects. USGBC North Carolina partners will help you and your team understand changes to the Construction Waste Management credits in the newest version of LEED, outlining the differences between the familiar processes of the Construction Waste Management credit from 2009 and the new requirements found in v4.
During this Lunch & Learn, network with others in the USGBC North Carolina community, meet the Branch Leadership team and enjoy a lunch buffet before diving into learning more about Construction Waste Management and LEED v4.
