This seminar aims to briefly review the new LEED EB O+M rating system, and to share our experiences from the consultant and ownership perspective administering the LEED EB O+M rating system within two large organizations. Our discussion will help owners understand mechanisms for cutting through the red tape and achieve the desired triple bottom line outcomes that are possible as part of the EB O+M process. Our panel style presentation and discussion will cover the basics of the LEED EB O+M system, how it can be most effectively applied, highlight best practices, and describe lessons learned through applied case study projects. We’ll identify how to get started with the process at any prospective building.


  1. Benchmarking building performance: Describe how LEED EB O+M can be used as tool for evaluating existing building performance and illustrate audit phase techniques for identifying prerequisite compliance.
  2. Making strategic use of performance periods: Explore application of LEED EB O+M in two large organizations and highlight impacts (positive and negative) on organizational culture and building improvements.
  3. Lessons learned and case studies: Discuss lessons learned during the LEED EB O+M implementation process.
  4. Getting started at your building: Provide guidance to prospective owners, facility managers or others interested in LEED EB O+M project application
