A current student in the UCLA Extension Arc_ID program, Nina Hiken, has passed the LEED exam and she is LEED AP! Congratulations Nina! We are very proud of the strong work and accomplishments we see from our students and graduates.
For those who aren’t familiar with LEED, below is some information from the US Green Building Council Website:
“LEED is an internationally recognized certification system that measures how well a building or community performs across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
LEED is flexible enough to apply to all building types – commercial as well as residential. It works throughout the building lifecycle – design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fitout, and significant retrofit. And LEED for Neighborhood Development extends the benefits of LEED beyond the building footprint into the neighborhood it serves.”
Reminder: Summer enrollment is still open! Take a summer class.
