Course Description: The REGREEN Implementation Workshop is based on the REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines©, a set of sustainability best practices that emphasize green product selection, team integration and whole-systems thinking. Filling a unique niche in the marketplace, REGREEN is designed for professionals who want to create sustainable, healthy interiors through single-scope projects such as a kitchen or bath remodel, as well as a whole-house gut rehab or historic renovation.
The new interiors-focused practicum was developed by American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) to address the industry-specific challenges interior designers face when renovating a client space. The full-day course offers practical tools and in-depth applications to prepare designers to make sustainable retrofit decisions that save money, improve home performance and contribute to healthy interiors. Building on foundational knowledge from the REGREEN Guidelines, the workshop employs faculty-led instruction and team charrettes for a fast-paced, information-filled day that will transform your design practice. Taught by veteran interior designer Annette Stelmack, Allied ASID, LEED AP BD+C, sustainable design consultant at Inspirit-llc and co-author of Sustainable Residential Interiors, the workshop is the capstone course in the REGREEN Trained certificate program.
CEU Credit: This 300-level workshop offers 0.8 health/safety/welfare CEU (IDCEC), which are also applicable to LEED credential maintenance (not LEED-specific). Attendees of the workshop will receive 0.8 CEU credits upon completion.

When & Where
The American Society of Interior Designers
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks, and advocacy. We thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional, and residential. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidenced-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.
ASID was founded 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are leading the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big, and of the places we live with the places we work, play, and heal.
