This third installment of the series will concentrate on motivating the sector towards environmental sustainability in buildings and delivering a platform for practitioners to gain insights from international award-winning projects. Michael Arny will present “LEED for Current Buildings: Strategic Issues and a Presidential Situation Study,” featuring the Clinton Presidential Library in Tiny Rock, Arkansas, as the case study. The presentation will outline LEED-EB (Leadership in Power and Environmental Design – Existing Buildings) implementation and certification, and the approach of successfully transitioning from LEED-NC (New Construction) to LEED-EB. Leonardo Academy was chosen by the Clinton Foundation in 2007 to manage the LEED-EB certification method and greening of operations at the Clinton Library, and supported the Library in achieving LEED-EB Platinum certification that exact same year.
Michael Arny speaks all through the country on LEED-EB and other sustainability practices.
