City staff become LEED APs

5 Comments

GBCI.org website LEED AP LogoFive City employees recently passed the licensing exam to become LEED Accredited Professionals.  LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a rating system created by the US Green Building Council as a way to measure the performance of green buildings.  By becoming LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs) these individuals have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles, and the LEED Rating System.  The new LEED APs include:

  • Tim Heron & Debbie Cleek – with BDS
  • Dawn Uchiyama & Jocelyn Tunnard – with BES
  • Valerie Garrett – with OSD

City staff is not typically involved with designing green buildings, but have an important role in assisting builders and developers who are building green.  The LEED Accrediation allows staff to better understand the opportunities and challenges around green building to assist customers with the development review process.

To prepare for the licensing exam the group partnered with David Posada with GBD Architects, who led study sessions.  David helps architects within his firm become LEED APs, and offered helpful examples of the LEED process applied to real projects.

Dear Sirs,

This might be off the topic, buy our people dies here because of the lack of the vaccin for the H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu), The people from Peru need the vaccin to be able to enter our Country, Children are dying! Our only help was from an organization called goldcard-shop.com , but they only had oseltamivir phosphate, and its not very effective.

Thanks For the word
