Video: Tips to Get LCA LEED v4 credit
“We hope everybody looks at whole building LCA credit because it’s much easier than you think to get three LEED v4 credits”, said Jamie Meil, Managing Director, Athena Sustainable Materials Institute, at the 2014 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo.
Meil was a part of the GAF Spotlight Series and spoke on “Whole Building LCA Credits in LEED v4 – Easier Than You Think.” He discussed how the credits are handled, and how he can help fill in the holes in the reference guide to attain the three credits for LCA.
