Very informative and reviews a lot of the aspects that must be considered when developing a project cost estimate of LEED vs. non-LEED projects.

Good introductory class into understanding associated costs with pursuing LEED. Also offers additional resources for further education regarding this topic.

This course is extremely basic. While the course is presented in a very professional manner with high quality graphics, the level of information was disappointing. Many of items covered are easily found on the USGBC website and the additional information was simply just links to or naming other available resources. The quality of this course would elevate if the named resources were explored in detail and how beneficial they can be when doing a LEED project.
In addition, some of the graphics were measurements from 2011, so I started to think that this course was already out of date even though it highlighted the latest LEEDv4 cost structure.
This course would benefit an individual who is just being exposed to LEED with no experience. Experienced professionals would not find this course of benefit to them.

This is a very basic course on estimating LEED project costs. It's more of an introduction into the various cost aspects that must be considered when starting out. I would almost title it as "An introduction to Estimating LEED Costs". Good course for those that have never worked on LEED since it's easy to understand.

For an overview course, the presenter did well to increase awareness about types of expected LEED costs. They shared a couple very interesting charts conveying information about costs per square foot and the increasing number of LEED projects - leading to the standardization of certain practices/materials procurement, etc. The studies/reports they cited also appear to be very useful and worth following up - exposure to these sources seems to have been the most valuable aspect of the course.

I was expecting more on real numbers being seen in the industry as they are associated with various building types. This was much more general.

This course provides a basic overview of the types of soft and hard costs a project team will incur when pursuing LEED certification for their project. In addition, the presentation provides a good list of resources for determining the exact magnitude of some of those costs.

This course is recommended for decision-makers who are pursuing or considering pursuing LEED certification for the very first time and want to understand what types of added costs they should anticipate. More experienced participants are encouraged to reference the additional materials cited by the course in order to obtain more in-depth knowledge of what those actual costs may be.
