Indoor air quality inspections continue to be a challenge for project teams, so Green Badger has put together this Indoor Air Quality Inspection Checklist.
Green Badger users can now search by LEED BPDO Option 2 compliance in our product database to see which products comply to earn each credit.
At Green Badger, we work with hundreds of LEED project teams to review their LEED scorecards, provide quarterly project reviews, or even provide LEED consulting services. This allows us to keep tabs on which products actually comply with the EPD and MIR Option 2 credits so that teams can earn these points.
LEED project teams can achieve 2 points for construction waste management with proper planning and communication. However, all projects must first develop and implement a construction and demolition waste management plan to achieve any points.
