In collaboration with CEBC, GBCI Middle East presents a webinar on LEED v4.1 O+M, USGBC’s rating system to certify existing buildings and facilities. LEED v4.1 O+M is powered by Arc, the platform that was created to help people design, build and operate buildings and spaces that benefit both people and the environment. Arc delivers a holistic performance score for buildings in pursuit of more sustainable, efficient and livable buildings though data inputs to benchmark themselves and improve performance and human health. With “Arc for All”, Arc is available free of charge for all users and building types, to assess operational performance and take steps towards earning LEED Certification.
