  • Course Description: AEC Daily: The Role of Automated Window Coverings in LEED® v4.1 & WELL v2™ Certification


    Green building rating system crosswalks are tools that identify where systems are equivalent or aligned, providing a streamlined approach that can help projects achieve dual certifications. This course provides an overview of the crosswalks related to automated window shades and daylight control in LEED® v4.1 Building Design and Construction (BD+C): New Construction and Core and Shell, LEED v4.1 Interior Design and Construction (ID+C): Commercial Interiors, and the WELL Building Standard™ version 2. Also discussed are trade-offs between project parameters and rating system requirements that designers and architects must consider.



    Learning Objective

    Discuss how daylighting strategies and automated shades can contribute toward meeting equivalent and aligned requirements in WELL v2 and the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C rating systems.

    Describe the equivalent and aligned requirements for materials and resources in WELL v2 and the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C rating systems and how shade fabric, motors, and controls can contribute toward meeting them.

    Identify trade-offs to consider when planning automated shade design and programming in order to balance project requirements and those of WELL v2 and the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C rating systems.

    Discuss design trends and the innovative and integrative design process related to automated window coverings that are reflected in WELL v2 and the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C rating systems.
