LEED Certification Update

The President Lincoln’s Cottage Robert H. Smith Visitor Education Center is still on track to earn LEED Gold certification and has been confirmed as the pilot project to test the USGBC Alternate Compliance Path.

Those of you interested in sustainable design and historic preservation should read the recent cover article in the AIA newsletter: http://www.aia.org/hrc_a_200812_campagna, penned by Barbara A. Campagna, AIA, LEED AP, Graham Gund Architect of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  The article includes links to more information about changes to the rating system and how to keep up with the National Trust’s involvement including the certification of the Visitor Education Center.

    “Barack Obama proposed that the federal government spend $150 billion over 10 years to promote
    alternative energy and create several million jobs. What better way to become part of the revoluion
    than to pass the LEED exam and become a LEED Accredited Professional. Clean Edison is one of the
    world’s leading providers of Renewable Energy Education. They offer programs for Architects,
    Engineers, Contractors, Attorneys, Real Estate Professionals, Graduate and College Students, and
    anyone interested in knowing more about renewable energy or getting into the Renewable Energy
    Job Market”

    This was by far one of the hardest for me! Not only because of the
    content but because of the time it took to study..not to mention the stress from the fear of failing.
    Glad to say I passed the exam the first time..barely but I did! Couldn’t have done it without
    Cleanedison.com. Their courses were right on target and the way the information was presented helped
    me retain a lot of it. Great way to expand your career.”
