Sustainability Requires Durability

Presented by

About this talk

How do these fit together: green building, durability, and quality? It turns out that the connections among these aspects of building are inextricable yet too often ignored. Connecting these three is essential in designing, specifying and constructing high performance buildings. This session will explore how to dovetail sustainability and durability and also take a look at how they are treated in the USGBC's LEED for Homes program in a prerequisite and credit in the Innovative Design Process (IDP) section of the LEED for Homes rating program.
