Contractor's Guide to LEED Certification is the consummate source of LEED information for anyone in or entering the construction industry. Unlike other LEED resources that focus on the totality of LEED compliance, this one-of-a-kind resource focuses on the narrower topic of construction-related requirements. It offers detailed explanations of the rational for each construction credit, as well as strategies for achieving LEED compliance. With a clear, logical organization, the ebook will serve as a valuable constructor reference at the beginning of a project, as well as a useful step-by-step guide through the duration of the project.
