Should You Be a LEED Green Associate? (Tue Tip)

less-

Those of you who follow my twitter stream know that I recently passed the exam to become accredited as a LEED Green Associate. The LEED Green Associate is a new credential, and the first level of credentialing that also includes the LEED-Accredited Professional + Specialty.

Why did I do it? I wanted to have a better understanding of the various LEED requirements and sustainability issues when working with my architect and engineering clients. Many of my A/E clients are AP certified — most before the new burdensome detailed requirements were issued (not that I’m bitter or anything!). I, on the other hand, knew just enough about green design to be dangerous.

While I’m ready not exactly ready to go out and leap tall (green) buildings (no doubt complete with vegetated roof) in a single bound, I do have a much broader understanding of the intricacies of complying with not just Code issues but also LEED issues in mind.

Please see full tip below for more information.
