COURSE OVERVIEW

Water is increasingly becoming an important metric in sustainable design and may even replace energy one day as the primary currency of green buildings. But what can be done now to improve water efficiency and quality while so much focus is still on energy? This presentation aims to answer just that. We begin with a review of LEED version 4 requirements involving water conservation and treatment and will expand the conversation on strategies currently being evaluated for buildings ranging from sports arenas to grocery stores.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Understand the ecological issues related to the misuse of the nation’s potable water supply.
  2. Evaluate the LEED version 4 credits and prerequisites, both intent and strategy. Contrast with LEED 2009 requirements.
  3. Learn about opportunities currently being evaluated on various Henderson Engineers projects that dramatically reduce potable water consumption well beyond low—flow fixtures.
  4. Understand the drawbacks or costs of water capture/reclaim.
