(Session G) Rating System Round-up: Navigating the Proliferation
Start Time: 2:15 PM
Length: 90 Minutes
Learning Objectives: Coming Soon
Description: There’s a new rating system in town. Actually, a slew of them. With these new offerings come new opportunities for industry professionals, but only if you can get a handle on the market value, usability, and best applications for each system. YR&G has been deeply engaged in shaping many of these systems, and also wrestle with using them. We’ll give you the low-down on our early experiences. This session will include a brief (and compelling!) overview of key considerations of each of the new offerings, including: Who’s currently using it; Which projects are a good or bad fit; What’s fabulous and what’s rotten about it. Folks will have a chance to ask questions about the programs following the overviews. Systems covered will include: Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES); WELL Building Standard; LEED v4 – Existing Buildings & New Construction; and NEW Underdevelopment Existing Buildings Rating System.
