This is a technical workshop on the LEED for Existing Buildings Operations & Maintenance (EB-OM) rating system (v3).
LEED for Existing Buildings encourages owners and operators of existing buildings to implement sustainable practices and reduce the environmental impacts of their buildings. This session will provide an overview of the LEED for Existing Buildings Operations + Maintenance certification process via some case studies, explain budgeting for an EB-OM project, provide insight into the most difficult/expensive credits as well as those that are easier and/or less expensive, enumerate the most important benefits for both building owners and tenants of pursuing certification, and identify the requirements for building managers.
- Understand how to budget for EBOM projects;
- Be aware of the potentially most and least difficult/expensive credits to pursue;
- Understand the most important certification benefits for both building owners and tenants;
- Be able to identify the requirements for building managers.
