Is a forum organized by the LEED for Homes Committee that will focus on the strategies, features, materials and systems that make up a holistically built green home. The program will cover all aspects of sustainable home design and construction and showcase the benefits of using a third-party certification to verify all of the efficiency and sustainability components of new home construction.

The experts will present interesting information covering the process of certifying a home to LEED standards, and discuss the updates and progression of the US Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes Certification.

Beyond the design, construction and certification of a green home, the presenters will also showcase local LEED Certified Homes in the Tampa Bay area, and provide useful information on living in a green home. The presentation will end with break out sessions that will offer a more in-depth discussion of specific sustainable home construction strategies that are of interest to all participants.
