EcoConsulting is an environmental consultancy specialized in eco-building. Our dedicated team works with clients, architects, and developers to improve the sustainability of their construction projects.

Following successful trainings and conferences in the UK, EcoConsulting has been regularly organizing a variety of Eco-Building and sustainability seminars in Lebanon, that can be taken either individually or as a complete series.

All 8 Seminars will enable you to have a solid understanding of sustainability, green buildings and, if you wish to, will train you for the LEED Green Associate (GA) accreditation.

 


 

 

 

“Eco-Building, Sustainability, & LEED Green Associate Training”
 

This innovative course, suitable for all levels, has been designed to give architects, engineers, developers, or any other construction professional a complete and methodical understanding of sustainable development in design and construction.

The Course
8 Seminars, each 2.5 to 3 hours, cover both theoretical concepts and practical applications on ways to minimize and mitigate the impacts of design and buildings on the natural environment, as well as enhance the health & well-being of buildings' occupants.

Alternatively, the modules can be undertaken individually or in any combination. Most eco-building design and techniques can be applied to all type of projects, whether residential, commercial, institutional, or other public buildings.

 

Case studies have also been integrated into the seminars program to enrich the course with practical examples of projects in Lebanon.

"LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures. All certified projects receive a LEED plaque, which is a recognized symbol demonstrating that a building is environmentally responsible and a healthy place to live and work.

There are both environmental and financial benefits to earning LEED certification."
