3. Identify and understand progressive strategies that implement a more "green" or sustainable approach to comply with regulatory requirements and/or LEED certification objectives.
4. Review case studies in which sustainable strategies have been implemented to allow the attendee to develop a level of understanding of where and how various stormwater strategies can be implemented and how these strategies affect the site and building uses.
5. Review case studies where sustainable site stormwater elements become part of the building’s program (to meet research and teaching objectives).
