Sustainable Site Selection and Management  
Location : RoGBC Office, Argentina 43, Bucharest
From: Thursday 07 December 2017, 09:30
To: Thursday 07 December 2017, 16:00

This course is a required course for those seeking the “Green Building Professional” certification.

A full day course to educate professionals on the importance of selecting a proper site for the purposes of constructing and operating green building.

Investors need to have a clear understanding of the requirements of green buildings before they make their land purchases. While increasingly desired by investors, the internationally recognized green building rating tools (such as LEED, BREEAM, DGNB, etc.) penalize those who are developing building sites without regard to the biodiversity value and other ecological impacts, public transit availability, and other sustainable siteing and management considerations.

Details of the course:

  • Gain an understanding of the opportunities and challenges of brownfield development including remediation and credit for green building certification;
  • Learn about assessing biodiversity value and innovative programs to minimize cost while maximizing ecological benefit and land value;
  • Understand new legal requirements (including, for example, recent changes for liability for soil toxicity);
  • Find out about the relation of site selection and management to international green building certifications.
