CALGreen Embodied Carbon Series: Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment for Code Compliance (Now On Video)


SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO OF THIS SESSION This session qualifies for 1 LU|HSW and 1 hr Zero Net Carbon Design Mandatory Continuing Education. (Live webinar attendees only) The CALGreen Embodied Carbon series is a joint educational program between the SEAOC Sustainable Design Committee and AIA CA. This 4-part webinar series addresses the green building code changes adopted by the California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) on August 2, 2023, focusing on reducing embodied carbon emissions in large-scale building construction projects. Understanding these changes is crucial, as compliance becomes mandatory starting July 1, 2024. Structural engineers and architects play a pivotal role in implementing these requirements effectively, shaping the future of sustainable construction. This second session will focus on implementation of the Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment (WBLCA) compliance pathway. The presentation will be led by industry experts who will cover basic practices, available tools and resources, and practical considerations for practitioners. Topics will range from an introduction to the fundamentals of WBLCA, essential practices in material quantity takeoffs and application of environmental product declarations, compliance tools and resources, setting an effective baseline, the landscape of common reduction strategies, and practical case study examples.
