USGBC hosts two sustainability events

The USGBC Massachusetts Chapter, a community of green experts, enthusiasts and students, have produced two events which aim to benefit sustainability.

The first is “LEED 201: Core Concepts and Strategies”. Held last March 6, the course was directed at describing the LEED rating system and its overall certification procedures. As far as achieving LEED certification goes, Insulspan has assisted both builders and architects and this has helped them with their respective building projects.

Second event is “Energy Modeling and the Whole Building Approach to Energy Efficiency”. Scheduled for March 12, the event will tackle topics regarding the whole building approach to energy efficiency.

Composed of a panel of professionals interested in energy modeling such as building code officials, engineers, architects and property managers, the event will also cover the inclusion of performance-based energy requirements as an integral part of the building code. This can influence a change in the market for buildings that are of high-performance and energy efficient.
