Half of the speakers seemed either bored or tired and it was a more fascinating project than they treated it as.

Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated

question # 2 states "Heinz" as the developer. That is the name of the ketchup company

The Developers name is HINES

The recording was very poor. Sometimes you could barely hear the speakers.

Kind of a clickbait course, was interested in mostly in the timber framed construction, but this became a typical project story on which credits add up to achieve the gold cert. Focus on the differences of new timber framed building and specific point accomplishments/challenges would have been more valuable.

Felt like I was watching a high school presentation on LEED. It was less than engaging and the speakers seemed less than knowledgeable about the whole LEED process.

Interesting building, LEED needs to add Health and Wellness credits for the items that were provided beyond LEED.

Part one too much self promotion, part two quite interesting.

Found the use and challenges with using timber interesting. Liked the connection and strong integration of transit options into the building design and function admirable.

The title of the course led me to believe it was about a tall timber building when in fact the wood construction was a very small part of the webinar.

The content does not really match the objectives.
It describes how T3 achieves LEED Gold.
The presentation could have been better, as it was purely reading from the scipt. The first 15 minutes could have been condensed to two minutes. The LEED tracker did not start until 15 mins into the first part (22 minutes). There were also too many presenters for this brief presentation material.
The interesting topcis include timber versus conventional materials in terms of llife cycle analysis; details on measurement and verifcation; but no details were provided.

I am ok with filmed live presentations, but they have to be good. While this was an informative case-study, it was dry and boring. People were just reading from scripts and reading facts most of the time. It was not engaging or interesting.

This educational course presents the T3 timber high rise building in Minneapolis, Minnesota as a case study for achieving certification in the LEED Core and Shell Rating System. This innovative building utilizes a heavy timber structural system and is pursuing Gold certification. The course format is a video of an educational seminar provided by the project's design and construction team. The presentation primarily centers around a credit-by-credit walkthrough of the project's LEED scorecard with a cursory examination of how the project achieved each credit.

This course is recommended for those who have at least a cursory knowledge of the LEED Rating System and how it has been applied to a building project. Participants without prior knowledge of LEED should be encouraged to familiarize themselves with the LEED credit requirements for the LEED-CS v2009 Rating System in order to follow along with the course.

Wish we could have seen the powerpoint slides better

LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council

Thank you for your course feedback. I would recommend downloading the PDF of the slideshow on the right hand side of the screen under Additional Resources. This will include all slides in the presentation for your convenience and may be easier to follow. I hope this helps.

This session concerns the presentation of a case study, a project under LEED certification according to v3 Core & Shell.
The presentation goes through the LEED checklist, in order to present main strategies implemented to achieve LEED prerequisites and credits. A specific focus on Energy & Atmosphere is presented, along with a description of how energy performance, measurement & verification and refrigerant management are pursued.
The course aims to be an understanding level session, oriented to practitionners interested in LEED application of project. I suggest this video to people interested in having a general overview about main issue of Core & Shell v3 rating system.
The case study refers to a project based on a wood structure, so benefit in using wood instead of other materials are mentioned, considering LEED objectives.
