Expand Your Knowledge of LEEDŽ during AWI Seminar at IWF

AWI supports IWF’s education programs by sponsoring a session for woodworkers at each show. With green building a popular hot market, the AWI presentation at the 2010 IWF will focus on "LEED® - Green - Sustainable Woodwork" on Thursday, August 26, 1:00 - 2:30 pm.

 "LEED® - Green - Sustainable Woodwork"            

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.

The AWI session is among 21 seminars in six tracks scheduled during the show. Click here for Information on all the IWF educational tracks.
