Education

This program explores the relationships between the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System™ of the U.S. Green Building Council project specifications and the use of wood and wood products. It is intended for general-level design professionals, end-use customers, and woodworkers who are unfamiliar with the LEED® requirements. The concept of LEED® points or credits are related to AWI’s support of sustainable architecture and the use of wood, nature’s renewable resource.  Attendees take home an understanding of the benefits and drawbacks of using FSC-certified materials. The program reviews green lumber, panel products, veneers, and doors.
