Masonry materials can be used to create buildings with significantly less impact on the environment than many other materials, often yielding immediate and measurable results toward sustainability. Brick, stone, tile, terrazzo, marble, and plaster are known for their beauty and performance, and these same materials also play an important role in addressing the requirements for up to 52 points in LEED v.3 certified projects. This seminar will identify the specific contributions that masonry makes in the area of Sustainable Sites, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation & Design. The program will also address the new requirements in LEED v. 3 and how they differ from those in LEED v. 2.2.
