Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Last week, NRMCA Vice President of Sustainability Tien Peng informed industry professionals of the major changes to the LEEDv4 green building rating system while attending the British Columbia Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s (BCRMCA) Annual Convention in Vancouver. The primary interest of the panel is educating its members on the new LEEDv4 Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) credit which allows concrete products to contribute through disclosure of product information. PCL’s Ray Eldridge and Ocean Concrete’s Kyle Gilmour joined Peng in the panel discussion. BCRMCA is developing its regional Industry-wide EPD modeled after NRMCA’s program to help its members meet the new credit option. Approximately 60 industry professionals and contractors attended the session.

NRMCA is a leader in the movement toward transparent reporting and has a number of programs to help members meet the LEEDv4 Disclosure and Optimization credits. The USGBC has announced extending the deadline for projects to register for LEED2009 to October 2016 to allow the design and construction industry time prepare for the dramatic changes in LEEDv4.
