LEED 251: Strategies for Success in LEED - LEED and Water Use Reduction
Water efficiency conserves both water and energy – generating benefits both for the environment and the bottom line. Determining water use reduction requires calculating an accurate baseline and reductions through efficiency strategies. Project teams often get tripped up on these calculations in LEED. Walk through calculations, issues and lessons learned from some typical and atypical scenarios. Register for this session to find a clear path for success in achieving LEED Water Efficiency Prerequisite 1 for design, construction and operations.
Featuring LEED Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and Committee members – LEED experts in the field – this series will highlight a number of credit categories undergoing important evolution. Upon completion of this webinar series, attendees will have the information needed to be prepared for integrating these updates to LEED into their professional practice.
-Identify common pitfalls in calculating water use reduction for LEED projects and resources for success
-Establish correct fixture groups based on FTE calculations and variable fixtures and uses
-Establish appropriate baseline water use for typical project types
-Calculate correct water use savings based off of baseline water use
-Apply calculations to ‘atypical’ project scenarios
