Have questions about a GBCI project or the certification process? Wondering how to earn Location and Transportation credits on a campus project? Looking for clarity on a complicated submission timeline, or wondering how to get started with O+M recertification? Perhaps you’d like to know if your building is healthy enough to earn recognition through WELL certification. GBCI has the answers!

Visit the GBCI Certification Work Zone at Greenbuild 2015 to meet one-on-one with reviewers and assessors and discuss questions about specific projects or about rating system requirements. Staff will be on hand to discuss the LEED rating system, as well as GBCI’s new offerings—including WELLPEERSITESEDGE and GRESB.

Additionally, the Work Zone will feature a series of “Meet the Expert” sessions this year. Staff from GBCI and partner organizations will be on hand to provide an overview of new programs and to answer your most difficult questions!

At Greenbuild 2014, more than 400 people visited the Work Zone to ask questions of our experts. Here’s what some of them had to say about their experience:

I think it is great to get feedback from the actual reviewers! I love it!

It was fantastic that in addition to meeting with our scheduled expert, she pulled in someone else who had worked on developing a credit we were discussing for additional perspective. My reviewer also followed up promptly with the additional information we had discussed during the work session.

I thought it was great. Thanks for taking the time for direct contact with project teams—it is very helpful and does make a difference.  I left with tangible and specific answers for projects that we are getting ready to submit.
