NRMCA Online Sustainability Course Highlights New LEEDv4

The building construction market is transforming. In response to growing environmental and economic forces, architects, engineers, developers and owners are seeking efficient and innovative building solutions that meet sustainability demands. Increasingly, concrete is being recognized for its strong environmental benefits in support of creative and effective sustainable development.

As a result, NRMCA has created a new online Webinar series, "Concrete’s Role in Sustainable Development,"  to be held January 21-24, 2013. Participants will learn about the environmental attributes of concrete; how it can contribute to sustainable development and a detailed understanding of how green building rating systems work. Plus, you will be prepared for the transition from LEED 2009 to the new LEED v4 rating system where radical emphasis on transparency will change the concrete industry. The new system is due to launch in June 2013. This course will help participants understand the new protocols and how to start planning for them. You’ll also learn how promoting sustainable development can benefit the environment and your business.
