    WELL AP Exam Prep Course

    Developed in partnership with leading physicians, scientists, and industry professionals, The WELL Building Standard® (WELL) is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact the health and well-being of the people who live, work, and learn in these buildings. 

    The WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP) credential signifies knowledge in human health and wellness in the built environment, and specialization in the WELL Building Standard. To become a WELL AP, candidates must pass the WELL AP exam. This course, designed to prepare attendees for the WELL AP exam, will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of WELL, including the seven concepts that provide the framework for the building standard: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Fitness, Comfort and Mind.

    In-Depth Seminar

    Life Cycle Assessment Demystified

    This session will provide an in-depth look at life cycle assessment (LCA) with a focus on its application to the built environment including the use of LCA to generate environmental product declarations (EPDs) and applications of LCA within LEED.  We’ll start with a quick history of LCA and an overview of the basics, so you don’t have to be well-versed in LCA to benefit from this session.

    But we’ll then go beyond the basics to dig into some of the details and realities that affect LCA results. Our intent is that you’ll be able to be a more powerful and informed consumer and user of LCA information in your work on sustainable design and construction. We’ll address questions including:

    ·         Can you really compare EPDs from different manufacturers? Why or why not?

    ·         What choices by LCA practitioners affect the results and how?

    ·         What are different levels of comprehensiveness in "whole-building LCA”, and what do they teach us about what matters most in the environmental footprint of buildings?

    ·         What are some of the major LCA-related data sources and tools relevant to the built environment, particularly for the US context?

      March 12 Monthly Program

      Handprints and Footprints

      Visionary Gregory Norris will share his concept of “handprints,” an optimistic philosophy for addressing the challenge of sustainability. The approach aims to engage people not only in reducing their footprints (negative environmental impacts), but also in creating a net-positive impact on the environment through their handprints.

      We know what footprints are: measures of the negative environmental impacts.

      People and organizations have footprints, and we do because the goods and services that we use every year also have footprints. We can use life cycle methods to help us understand and reduce the footprints of our lives, our organizations, our buildings, and our decisions.

      At the end of the day, though, we still have footprints — that is, we’re not able to fully eliminate the fact that we each, individually and collectively, take a toll on the planet every day. What’s more, we each know that even if we COULD get our own individual footprint to zero, this alone would make only a tiny dent in the environmental challenges of this critical moment.  How can we respond?

      Fortunately, we also can have handprints: positive impacts outside the scope of our own footprints.

      We can help one another in the bigger work of reducing humanity’s total footprint, and bringing us collectively into balance with the ecosystems in which we live.  When our handprints are bigger than our footprints, we’re “net positive” — we give more than we take. We become net healers of the planet.

      Handprinting and net positive is within reach for each and every one of us, in all countries; and for all of our organizations too!

      This talk with explain handprints, and give you practical ideas for creating handprints at home, at work, and in our communities. We’ll include a look at footprints and handprints of the built environment.

        LEED Supports Healthy Spaces

        Human health is a key topic for both new and existing spaces. In LEED, the Indoor Environmental Quality category addresses the myriad design strategies and environmental factors—air quality, lighting quality, acoustic design, control over one’s surroundings—that influence the way people learn, work and live.

        During this session, LEED subject matter experts will review what determines our health and how LEED addresses this, some of the EQ credits and the research that informed the credit requirements, and related project examples.

        In-Depth Seminar 
        Supporting Global Goals Locally through Green Buildings

        The United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted in 2015 to “promote prosperity while protecting the planet.” The 17 Goals are wide-ranging, challenging humanity to decouple economic growth from climate change, poverty, and inequality.

        Green building supports many of the Sustainable Development Goals by reducing waste and contributing to healthier physical environments, but also by educating, creating jobs, reducing inequalities, and strengthening communities. At this in-depth session, learn more about the UN Sustainable Development Goals, their relevance to the St. Louis-area green building industry, and how to use them to better communicate and advance partnerships.

        LEARNING OBJECTIVES

        • Describe the UN Sustainable Development Goals and their relevance to the St. Louis-area green building industry.
        • Understand how green building supports and contributes to the achievement of specific UN Sustainable Development Goals.
        • Connect specific building functions to UN Sustainable Development Goals.
        • Apply UN Sustainable Development Goals to your own projects.

        Net Zero Carbon, Water, and Energy + Decarbonizing at the District Level

        In partnership with ASHRAE-St. Louis Chapter.

        District scale projects and campuses lend themselves well for the goals of complete decarbonization and net zero energy and water. Depending on the project type, context, and location, these goals may also represent the best first and lifecycle cost approach. But getting there will involve navigating everything from utility rates, regulations, and connection fees, metering configurations, integrating electric vehicles, district electric and thermal technologies, managing a phasing plan, and managing ongoing operations.

        This session will start by reviewing the various definitions of net zero energy and carbon, and Zero Water and One Water, including those developed by the USGBC and ILFI. It will then provide some context in terms of integrating renewables from the built environment into the larger utility mix, addressing duck curves and evolving rate structures. Lastly, it will walk through a step by step process of evaluating district systems, moving towards a decision of onsite technologies and configurations -- including financial and incentive analysis, evaluating the potential for onsite storage, and partnering with third party entities where appropriate. It will also include best practices regarding performance management so that the project’s ultimate zero carbon and lowest life cycle cost are realized. This will include reference to 3-4 actual projects around the country in various phases of development.

        LEARNING OBJECTIVES

        •    Review definitions and challenges of Net Zero Energy, Water, and Carbon.
        •    Examine the role of the built environment in transitioning to a 100% clean energy future.
        •    Describe various utility contexts, rate structures and the changes that are taking place in the utility space.
        •  Discuss how to approach district energy and water projects from technical and economic perspectives, and the challenges and opportunities unique to these project types.

        In-Depth Seminar 
        LEED Zero and 4.1: The LEED We’ve Been Waiting For

        With the release of the LEED Zero suite of certifications (Zero Energy, Carbon, Water, and Waste), and with the evolution of LEED v4.1, we may have a series of rating systems that provide market-driving direction to lead the sustainability industry. In addition, LEED Zero finally bridges the gap between a great project (LEED Platinum) and the various definitions of Net Zero Energy (NZE) and Carbon that exist out there, and it creates alternate options for defining a great project (say, LEED Silver + NZE). They will also direct buildings to adopt solutions that are supportive of an electric grid that is taking on more and more renewable energy, and to consider their options for energy procurement, including contracting for meaningful offsite renewable resources. 

        This session will review v4.1 (BD+C) along with LEED Zero Energy and Carbon to provide an overview of the various changes, an introduction to the new tools and metrics, and will look at the applicability to a few different project types (e.g. urban high rise versus less dense and non-space constrained). It will also include a discussion and reflection of how well these rating systems capture the current need in the market or whether we should anticipate further changes in the years to come.

        Learning Objectives:

        • Identify changes in LEED v4.1
        • Examine the definitions and challenges of Net Zero Energy, Water, and Carbon
        • Discuss how LEED v4.1 and LEED Zero work for various project types
        • Learn to love LEED again!

        In-Depth Seminar Intro to EcoDistricts

        Within the world of green rating systems, LEED provides a model for building-level sustainability, for single-entity controlled community developments, for campuses, and for cities, but it does not have a model for neighborhoods/districts that are undergoing major redevelopment.  EcoDistricts is a way for districts and neighborhoods to guide urban development to empower just, sustainable, and resilient neighborhoods.

        Neighborhoods and cities trying to achieve these goals can follow the EcoDistricts’ “Protocol” to take a collaborative, holistic, neighborhood-scale approach to community design to achieve rigorous, meaningful performance outcomes that matter to people and planet.

        In addition, EcoDistricts has just released a certification program to recognize those districts that have achieved the goals established through the protocol and an accreditation for people working to create and sustain EcoDistricts.

        This session will walk through the EcoDistrict Protocol, provide an introduction to the certification process and introduce the accreditation.

        LEARNING OBJECTIVES

        • Identify the fundamental goals and principles of an EcoDistrict
        • Explain the main components of the EcoDistricts Protocol
        • Apply basic concepts of an EcoDistrict in order to begin formation of an EcoDistrict
        •  Illustrate the importance of regional sustainability efforts
