This course is designed for ESM students and professionals who are looking to gain project experience on existing Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) projects. This course is for students interested in enhancing operations and maintenance in existing buildings. Students will learn the requirements and calculations required for the following LEED credits: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality.
