For the upcoming Fourth Annual MED|Ed Facilities Conference and Expo in Boston, the USGBC Massachusetts Chapter will be sponsoring a number of sessions during the event's two days. The first session is T18: Living Building Challenge on your Campus, as taught by Shawn Hesse, USGBC Chapter Board member and architect at emersion DESIGN.
The Living Building Challenge is the built environment's most rigorous performance standard. Participants will gain a basic understanding of the Living Building Challenge – a philosophy, advocacy tool and certification program that addresses development at all scales. To be certified, projects must meet a series of ambitious performance requirements, including Net Zero Energy, Waste and Water. Participants will learn to describe the key components of the program and discuss the rationale for restorative design principles.
