Green Building Codes 101: Navigating the Standards, Codes, and Rating Systems
Live Date: February 24th, 2011: 1:00 – 2:30 PM ET

Session Description:
As the landscape of sustainable construction practice expands into mainstream construction practice, many in the land use development, construction, and real estate communities are left asking, “How do model construction codes, consensus standards, and voluntary rating programs work together to drive “green” construction practice into the mainstream consciousness of society.”

Join leaders in your field from four key associations in the green building industry to help you navigate the landscape of sustainable construction practice. They will provide perspective, frame the facts and discuss the issues you need to be aware of to make sense of how these predominant programs work together to drive “green” construction practices into the marketplace. You will walk away with an understanding of what you know (and don’t know) about the relationship between model construction codes, consensus standards, and voluntary rating programs and their impact on your profession.
