Compost BMP Design for LEED Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development
Presenter: Britt Faucette, PhD, CPESC, LEED AP
Director of Research and Design Services, Filtrexx International
On-Demand Webcast, 1hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs
Join The Sustainable Site author, Britt Faucette, PhD, CPESC, LEED AP for an introduction to green building and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating and certification program for New Construction (NC), Version 3.0, and how compost-based BMPs fit into this growing program. This Webcast will discuss different compost-based BMPS; applicable LEED credit categories; supporting research, specifications and design tools; and real-world application in a LEED Platinum project.
Incorporating over ten years of scientific, peer reviewed research from North American research institutions on compost used in stormwater management applications this presentation will provide an overview of compost-based BMPs and how they are used in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating and certification program. Key learning objectives for this Webcast include: an introduction to green building and the LEED certification program; understanding of compost-based BMPs; summary of relevant research, performance, and design tools for compost BMPs in green building applications; and review of a case study using compost-based BMPs in a LEED project. At the conclusion of the Webcast participants should be able to understand and identify relevant compost-based BMPs, how they fit into LEED green building programs, and the technical tools that can aid them in professional design and implementation.
Webcast attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:
- Green building and LEED certification program fundamentals
- Compost-based BMPs options and applications
- Research, performance, and design tools available for compost BMPs in green building applications
- Real-world application and lessons learned via the review of a case study using compost-based BMPs in a LEED Platinum project
* Webcast presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour. Webcast may exceed scheduled time.
*Each state and certification agency has different requirements; it is your responsibility to know what they are.
Note that 1 PDH = 0.1 CEU.
