    Net Zero Energy Buildings: 17 Project Teams Tell All

    Linda Reeder, FAIA, LEED AP, will present the shared lessons learned by 80 project team members on 17 buildings that are performing as net zero energy. Project types include educational, office, retail, and residential, and range in size from 1,000 to 320,000 square feet. Lessons for design teams, owners, and operators will be presented.

    This seminar will flatten the learning curve for designers, owners, and constructors undertaking—or hoping to undertake—a net zero energy project. Attendees will gain knowledge about processes to engage in and pitfalls to avoid while learning how to approach the challenges peculiar to designing a net zero energy building.

    Linda Reeder is the author of the book Net Zero Energy Buildings: Case Studies and Lessons Learned, published in April, and an associate professor in the Construction Management program at Central Connecticut State University. Her consulting practice is based in New Haven.

    This presentation serves as a primer for the new WELL Building Standard. WELL is the first third party building certification which places people as the core focus, correlating the design of the built environment to evidence-based outcomes regarding human health impacts. This standard is built on the tenets of both LEED and the Living Building Challenge, offering a hybrid system that emphasizes the nexus of 1) design and construction, 2) operations and maintenance, and 3) policies and procedures. Come learn about this exciting new evolution in "green" buildings, including an overview of the various sections, its similarities and differences with mainstream 3rd party certifications like LEED, how to prepare for the WELL AP credential, and how to potentially implement WELL on your projects.


    1. Participants will become familiar with the WELL Building Standard as a design guideline for promoting human health.

    2. Participants will learn the steps and timeline for implementing the WELL Building Standard on various different project “typologies”.

    3. Participants will gain insight into WELL’s similarity/overlap with LEEDv4 and the ILFI’s Living Building Challenge v3.0.

    4. Participants will gain insight into how to register, prepare for, and pass the WELL Accredited Professional (AP) examination.

    This presentation is eligible for 1.5 GBCI self-reporting hours (WELL AP and LEEP AP CMP). For WELL AP's, this will count as "WELL-specific" hours.
