Title: Understanding the LEED v4 Building Design & Construction ( BD + C ) & Rating System

Overview: The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) includes a variety of rating systems that are recognized as the international mark of excellence for green building in over 132 countries.
LEED addresses the design, construction, operations and maintenance of buildings, in addition to development on community scale.

These full- days, interactive workshop introduces the intent, key elements, main requirements and unique aspects of the Green Building Design and Construction (BD+C) LEED v4 rating systems.

Workshop participants will gain a solid understanding of the core concepts and strategies behind a successful green construction project.

This workshop is not a technical review of every credit. All credits will be addressed but the intent is to teach the concepts and goals of these rating systems through understanding of the prerequisites, key credits, and synergies among the categories.

Hamoda managed all aspects of LEED projects from kick-off to closeout, assigning team responsibilities and making sure all documentation is complete and uploaded to LEED Online for the highest level of LEED certification possible within a project’s budget, timeline, and site constraints.

Previously, Hamoda worked on international consultancy offices in Egypt, along with working on environmental urban development projects in Italy & USA. Hamoda studied architecture, earning a Masters degree in environmental planning from Italy that allowed him to focus on sustainability issues within the context of urban development.

In addition to his work as a consultant, Hamoda assists in the development of presentations & trainings for industry professionals and clients, covering topics from green building planning & design strategies to understanding sustainability.
