GBCSA / Workshops / Green Star Existing Building Performance (EBP) – Face to Face Workshop

Existing Building Performance (EBP) - Live Webinar

About the Webinar

*GBCSA has introduced Live Webinars to replace the Face to Face Workshops in order to accommodate for the new social distancing regulations. 

This webinar is ideal for those involved in the ongoing operation of existing buildings but new to sustainability or who want to gain an understanding of the business benefits derived from using the Green Star rating tools.

It shares the environmental impact areas associated with the operation of the built environment through the structure and ordered categories of the Green Star tools. This is invaluable for both those seeking certification and for those just wishing to understand how negative impact can be radically reduced through considered policies, good management and team collaboration.

This course is part of our accreditation pathways. 

Who Should Attend

This webinar is accessible as a stand alone offering or part of the EBP Accredited Professional program. It is appropriate for any built environment professional or property related person who is seeking a high level understanding of our existing building performance tool.

Webinar Format

This webinar forms a key part of the 3 part Green Star AP programme for Existing Buildings. After attending, participants can elect to continue on to the corresponding online AP course and then complete the online exam in order to obtain an AP- Existing Buildings accreditation.

Hosted by the Green Building Council South Africa and a qualified faculty member who holds the expertise of applying these rating tools to the certification of a building, this session includes an introduction to the Green Building Council, outlines what we do and then dives into the rating tools, the categories and credits. We work through case studies and examples that offer participants a deeper understanding of the application of this tool.
