Event description

Description

The Living Building Challenge asks:

What if every single act of design and construction made the world a better place?

Join the USGBC Massachusetts Chapter and the New England Living Building Challenge Collaborative for a day combining high-level institutional strategy towards “Getting to LBC,” and a deep investigation of the Challenge’s critical complexities and opportunities. This workshop is designed for industry professionals looking to connect with motivated owners, contractors, designers, and engineers. Together we will develop strategies for incorporating the LBC into your current projects, or discuss ways for integrating the principles into future projects,. Throughout the day we will explore the institutional opportunities the Challenge provides, while sharing successful implementation solutions employed in local New England projects.

This workshop will:

  • Uncover what motivates owners to pursue the LBC;
  • Integrate lecture, conversation, and workshop styles into a day of collaboration, learning and robust discussion;
  • Encourage participation from a diversity of professions to stimulate rich conversation through a multidisciplinary lens;
  • Guide participants beyond the basics of the Challenge by sharing lessons learned and case study examples;
  • Identify methods of incorporating portions of the LBC into your current and future work, and identify a path towards committing to full certification projects.


We hope you will join us in growing the LBC design framework by adopting it into your own projects and strengthening the network of practitioners who are collectively pushing the boundaries of how design and construction can work to make the
built environment a better place.

This course is intended for an audience with a basic knowledge and understanding of the Living Building Challenge.
