No Prerequisite Required
The Living Architecture Performance Tool (LAPT) is a rating system and resource, designed to certify that green roofs and walls are designed to achieve certain measurable and replicable performance benefits, so that they can be funded, designed, installed, and maintained with a higher degree of confidence. In 2018, the LAPT v.1 was released, and pilot projects are encouraged to participate.
This workshop will offer registrants detailed information on each of the credits, clarity on areas of ambiguity, and a chance to work through challenges with tool administrators. Complimentary registration to this workshop is offered for projects that register for the LAPT pilot phase. Visit greeninfrastructurefoundation.org/lapt for more information on the LAPT.
