How to Set Up Your General Contractor for Success on an LBC Project
Track: Materials + Products

Many general contractors are familiar with “green building” strategies, which are most commonly defined by the requirements set forth by LEED. However, there is a gap between the ideal and reality. Just communicating to a contractor that a project is pursuing LBC and that it is a whole different ball game does not simply result in a successful execution. This session will explore how the general contractor’s role needs to adapt for an LBC project, especially one pursuing the Materials Petal. The session is useful for anyone that might be involved in the materials specifying process. Our discussion will help project teams overcome some of the challenges to producing truly transformative structures.
