Event Details

The Chicago Green Building Hack-a-thon will be hosted on Friday June 7th, 2013 from 8am - 5:30pm.  This one day event is designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical sustainability professionals. 

All Green Building Hack-a-thon events follow the same basic model and is tailored specifically for

  1. Developing professionals seeking to qualify for LEED Accreditation, and 
  2. Experienced LEED professionals seeking Continuing Education. 

We build Teams around the 5-10 participating community projects (e.g. a Habitat for Humanity home) and then it’s a an all day frenzy of “hacking” these local community design projects, methodically evaluating every LEED credit and green building strategy – and assisting that community building organization in the design and green consulting of a real-world LEED project.

Upon completion of the 'Hack", participants will leave with

  • LEED Project Experience necessary to qualify for ANY LEED AP exam
  • 8 hours of LEED Continuing Education, classified as "Project Participation"
  • Real world experience on a LEED Platinum project
  • One year membership to your local USGBC Chapters (new members only)

and resulting in,
  • assistance towards the LEED design and construction of buildings and homes that will support underserved families in their local communities.

The featured projects include: 
1) Two (2) Single family homes in Bloomington, IL seeking LEED Platinum. (HFH McLean County)

2) Two (2) Single family rehab homes in Chicago, IL seeking LEED Certifed (Indeliable Construction)

3) Three (3) multi-family developments in Chicago, IL seeking LEED Platinum (Greenline Homes)
