The School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science at Centennial College presents Building Green with LEED: LEED Canada for New Construction Rating System 1.0

This seminar course offers students working knowledge of the Canada Green Building Council’s (CaGBC) LEED® Canada for New Construction Rating System 1.0 (LEED®-NC). Key areas of sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality will be discussed in detail.


Case studies, field trips and selected guest speakers will provide a “real-life” context to the technical information in the Guide. The course will provide an in-depth familiarity with the rating system and will help support students who wish to take the LEED Professional Accreditation Exam. The LEED®-NC rating system is a comprehensive, voluntary, market-driven building rating system that recognizes buildings that incorporate design, construction, high-performance systems and materials towards a reduced environmental impact. It is the most widely used rating system in North America, and has become the definitive benchmark for what constitutes a “green building.”


The course is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00pm to 7:00pm during the period of Tuesday, May 19 to Thursday, July 2, 2009. Please note that there will be no classes the week of Tuesday, June 9 to allow for the CaGBC Conference in Montreal.


The Centennial HP Science and Technology Centre is located at 755 Morningside Avenue in Scarborough, Ontario. Course instructors are Francis Lapointe and John Romanov, OAA, LEED.


The price of the course is $550.00. The LEED® Canada-NC 1.0 Green Building Rating System and Reference Guide Package is included in the course fee.
