Case Studies in LEED Platinum
Boston is home to several projects that have earned LEED Platinum Certification, the highest level of Certification within the US Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System. Participants will tour three very different projects that have all achieved LEED Platinum status and will contrast and compare the very different strategies used to achieve a high level of sustainable design. Tour will include a state-of-the-art office building, a restored historic building with office and retail space, and lastly, a building that houses approximately 23,000 sf of space for a non-profit organization.
- Approaches to create sustainable buildings– employing a spectrum of features from high-tech to very low-tech
- Ability to compare and contrast the three different approaches and outcomes
