LEED® for Homes: Call for expressions of interest in CaGBC’s Case Study Program

The Canada Green Building Council’s LEED® Canada Complete has just received a huge response to their call for expressions of interest in their upcoming commercial office buildings national pilot project.

The CaGBC is now taking expressions of interest (before September 13, 2007) from Canadian teams that are part of (or interested in participating in) the USGBC’s Pilot project of LEED® for Homes, for inclusion in the
CaGBC’s Case Study Program. These participants will have a variety of benefits, including contributing to the development of the LEED® Canada for Homes rating system.

Canadian teams that already are involved or interested in participating in the USGBC LEED® for Homes pilot are invited to apply to the
CaGBC Case Study Program before Thursday, September 13th, 2007.

LEED® Canada Complete is being developed by the CaGBC for launch in 2008 at the CaGBC’s first national summit, June 11-12, 2008 in Toronto, and full program launch in 2009. It is an expansion to provide low-cost, performance-based LEED certification at all stages of a building’s life cycle via a distributed, on-line, market-based delivery.

The CaGBC has ambitious goals, and LEED® Canada Complete is the tool to achieve them.
