Labs21 Environmental Performance Criteria Workshop
Thursday, October 19, 2006
2:00 - 5:00 p.m.
With the growing demand for high performance, low-energy, facilities, the need for an assessment system to classify these sustainable buildings becomes essential. The Labs21 Environmental Performance Criteria (EPC), a point-based rating system that assesses the environmental performance of laboratories, has emerged as a solution. EPC builds on the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC's) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system by adding credits and prerequisites pertaining to laboratories. This workshop introduced EPCs and covered such issues as credits and prerequisites; technologies and strategies that can be used to meet EPC requirements; cost implications of meeting those requirements; and sustainable design processes developed from the Labs21 Tool Kit.
