Get Your GBCI CE Credits at DesignColumbus 2019

Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) is an independent organization that recognizes excellence in the green business industry. GBCI credential holders must earn general continuing education (CE) hours, defined as activities that are relevant to general green building concepts, such as environmental sustainability or human health and wellness. GBCI also offers the following project certifications and professional credentials: LEED, EDGE, GRESB, Parksmart, PEER, SITES, TRUE and WELL. (Any activity that counts as general CE hours for one credential may count for other GBCI credentials.)

According to the USGBC:

  • The LEED AP BD+C credential suits professionals with expertise in the design and construction phases of green buildings serving the commercial, residential, education and healthcare sectors.
  • The LEED AP ID+C professional credential serves participants in the design, construction and improvement of commercial interiors and tenant spaces that offer a healthy, sustainable and productive work environment.
  • LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) was engineered to inspire and help create better, more sustainable, well-connected neighborhoods.

Managing Legal Issues on Sustainable Projects

Sustainable design and construction provide exciting opportunities to reduce negative impacts on the environment, improve energy efficiency and building performance, and enhance the health and comfort of building occupants. New building codes and certification systems continually impact sustainable design and construction practices. As sustainable design and construction continues to evolve, owners, architects and contractors will be faced with an increasingly diverse set of standards to apply to their projects. Through an exploration of the design-bid-build, construction management and design-build delivery models, participants in this course will understand the unique roles, responsibilities, risks and opportunities unique to sustainable design and construction projects and discover how to reduce, or better allocate, contractual risks using the AIA’s Sustainable Projects Contract Documents and the revised AIA Sustainability Guide.

Presenting will be:

  • Lane Beougher, Ohio Facilities Construction Commission

Lane Beougher is an architect in the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission and served as State Architect from Feb. 2011 to Sept. 2012. Lane serves on the AIA Contract Documents Committee and was founding vice chair of the U.S. Green Building Council-Central Ohio Chapter. He is also a Fellow of the Construction Specifications Institute and currently serves as Institute President.
