LEED v4 Launch Update

The US Green Building Council continuously engages in a process of revising and improving its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating systems. The USGBC will launch LEEDv4, its latest major overhaul of the system, this month at Greenbuild in Philadelphia. LEEDv4 represents the biggest change in the history of LEED. 

The Eugene Branch of the Cascadia Green Building Council invites everyone to a discussion about this latest iteration of LEED, and how it will affect the green building community. The event will take place on Tuesday, November 19 (in advance of Greenbuild) in the Tykeson Room at the Eugene Public Library, and is free to everyone. Gabe Cross, chair of the Eugene Branch of the Cascadia Green Building Council, will introduce the changes to LEED, which include updated technical content, an improved user interface, simplified LEED Online forms, and easier to read Reference Guides.

Gabe is a founding member and principal at New Axiom, LLC. He oversees LEED documentation for construction projects and acts as a sustainability consultant for business operations and building projects. In addition to his work for New Axiom, Gabe is an instructor for the Northwest Energy Education Institute, a program of Lane Community College, where he teaches courses on LEED, Energy Efficiency Methods, and Alternative Energy Technology. In addition to being Chair of the Cascadia Green Building Council’s Eugene Branch, Gabe is Facilitator of the Living Building Collaborative Eugene. Gabe also serves on the Board of Directors of BRING Recycling, sitting on the planning committee.
