  • Understand the key components of an Indoor Air Quality Management Plan
  • Review concepts behind preventing IAQ issues during construction
  • Strategies and synergies between IAQ credits
  • Review the timing of installation of materials to minimize IAQ impacts
  • What do to when minor water damage issues occur during construction
  • Flush, or IAQ Test, which path should we take?
  • What is involved in IAQ testing?
  • How to ensure that your building passes IAQ testing?
    • During construction
    • Prior to occupancy
  • What do to if the first round of IAQ testing is unsuccessful



  • Understand why erosion and sediment control matters – why do we care and what regulations apply
  • Understand how LEED defines and approaches erosion and sediment control
  • Be able to recognize the risk level of different site conditions for erosion and sediment control
  • Understand the fundamental concepts for erosion and sediment control
  • Review of common erosion and sediment control techniques – what details make each technique successful
  • What are the critical factors that make a well-managed erosion and sediment control project
  • Understand how municipally driven ESC regulations overlap and may be the same or different from LEED
  • Know what will be required for ESC reporting for LEED or Municipalities
