{Past Event} - Green Guide for Health Care Series – Tracking Your Progress: GGHC Documentation

May 5, 2006 - 12:00 am - May 5, 2006 - 12:00 am -- Eastern Standard Time


Tracking Your Progress: GGHC Documentation will explain the purpose of documentation for a self-certifying Green Guide for Health Care project. Two case studies will illustrate the importance of tracking green strategies through project delivery and construction and tips on how to ensure that goals established at the beginning of the project are carried through project completion.

Takehome Value

  • Understand the value and purpose of documentation in a self-certification rating system.
  • How to incorporate green strategies into the design and construction process from both a health care system's perspective and an architecture firm's perspective.
  • How to use the GGHC manual as a design tool throughout the design and construction process, not as a report card.
  • How to integrate discussions of sustainable design into all meetings, not as an add on topic.
  • How to create specifications that will protect sustainable design initiatives.
