LEED "Cram for the Exam"
May 2009, Enfield CT

'"Cram for the Exam' is the perfect name for the LEED NC workshop.  Do not expect this course alone to be the magic key to passing the exam.  Show up, however, with a good familiarity of the rating system, and it will clear up any last minute gray areas and answer any nagging questions you may have before the big test.  Well taught, the perfect prep course to strengthen your knowledge for the exam.  Highly recommended. "
- Tracy Van Rye, ASLA, LEED AP

"Hi Erin -- I passed the LEED exam!  Thank you for your excellent workshop.  You are an articulate and inspiring speaker and the workshop really helped me focus on exactly what to study given my limited amount of available study time."
- Nancy King, Landscape Architect, LEED AP

Taught by Erin Nunes Cooper, AIA, LEED AP and Cynthia M. Kaplan, LEED AP

New Projects

Cooper Green Design (CGD) is working on 3 new projects with 4 Elements Group:

Centerpoint CT:
CGD is providing green building design and LEED consulting services for the Centerpont CT campus in Middletown, CT. The campus includes 7 new 2-story buildings and one existing building renovation. Spaces are available for purchase or for lease in an “office-condo” arrangement. The first phase includes 3 new buildings that are registered under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Core & Shell Rating System and targeting a LEED Silver Certification. A rooftop photovoltaic system will provide a portion of the electricity, and an energy-efficient building envelope will reduce energy use and utility costs for owners and tenants. Each space will be individually metered, allowing owners and tenants to monitor their own energy and water use and encourage conservation practices. Tenant and owner guidelines are being developed in order to support LEED Certification for Commercial Interiors spaces and to provide occupants with suggested strategies to maximize the performance of their spaces. Architect: Tyre Studio

Top 10 Greenbuild Quotes

Al Gore inspired the nearly 30,000 Greenbuild attendees in Arizona last week when he pledged to the children of our nation "We are NOT going to let you down!" See this and other witty, inspiring, and technical quotes from my Top 10 Greenbuild Quotes post on Cooper Green Design | The Blog.

Energy Use Intensity in Academic Buildings

CGD is developing a planning tool for college and university campuses that will help to proiritize buildings that require immediate energy retrofits.  A preliminary study included 50 buildings at a private university in the northeast. The energy intensity for each building was calculated and then compared to the CBECS data based on building type and region. Buildings are placed into 7 categories based on the % difference from the CBECS comparision, and buldings that are under-performing are recommended for retrofits.

If you have separately metered buildings on your campus and would like to contribute data to this ongoing project, please contact CGD.

Green Building Training & Education

Did you know that CGD provides customized green building workshops for groups and organizations of all sizes? Led by Erin Nunes Cooper, AIA, LEED AP, workshops are tailored to individual needs. Previous workshop topics have included Green Building Legislation, Costs & Benefits of Green Building, LEED "Cram for the Exam" Workshops, and Campus Sustainability. Contact CGD to discuss your needs and to learn more about engaging Erin to speak at your event.

Don't have a group event? Considering taking a LEED exam on your own? CGD organizes open workshops or study sessions when there is enough interest. Contact CGD to request a session.
