Attending next month’s ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX)? Mark your calendar for our discussion of Connecting LEED to Our Commonwealth: LEED Regionalization on Thursday, 10/30.
LEED Regional Priority credits allow Massachusetts prioritize the environmental issues most critical to our region. What are the biggest priorities for the region? How different are the environmental issues for the Cape and Worcester? These are the sorts of questions that the USGBC MA Chapter team wrestled with to determine the Regional Priority Credits for the LEED V4 rating systems. The process entailed looking deeply at GIS and other available data for the special environmental and economic qualities of the cities and towns of Massachusetts to help define key issues. This presentation takes attendees through the process, starting with environmental mapping, leading to the definition of regional priorities, and ending in a list of credits and areas to emphasize. We’ll also give special attention to defining the essential environmental qualities of each region of Massachusetts.
