While certification for LEED-EB O&M (LEED-Existing Buildings, Operations & Maintenance) represents a significant investment for the building owner, it can also provide a significant return. This webinar will compare and contrast the certification process for three different buildings: a corporate HQ, a multi-tenant office building, and a laboratory research facility. Attendees will discover the outcome for each building's owner, the LEED process, the payback, and the lessons learned.
After viewing this webinar, attendees will:
- Learn how to assess your building’s path to LEED certification.
- Recognize the challenges and opportunities of LEED-EB O&M certification.
- Learn common mistakes and overlooked opportunities during the LEED process.
- Understand the benefits that building owners received from certification.
