Join us for an overview of federal mandates, High Performance Sustainable Building Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) and sustainability assessment tools.

The Department of Defense (DOD) published the High Performance Sustainable Building Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) on sustainability on March 1, 2013.  The UFC pulls together all known federal criteria including the High Performance Sustainable Building Guiding Principles (GP), EISA 2005, EPACT 2005 and Executive Orders 13423 and 13514.

This webinar will discuss the link between federal mandates, UFC 1-200-02, and sustainability assessment tools.  It will also include descriptions and how to use five assessment tools: the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) GP assessment tool, the Green Building Institute’s (GBI) GP assessment tool, and Sustainability and Energy Record Cards for the Army, Navy and Air Force (AF).  Presenters will describe how the record cards will be used throughout the life of the buildings and how that data collected will support the Annual Energy Management Report required by the Office of Management and Budget.
