Participate in one of our EDGE Technical Workshops and learn the ins and outs of EDGE, a green building rating system for new residential and commercial buildings. A mass market transformation tool, EDGE will allow Latin America—and other emerging markets around the world—to scale up green buildings in a fast, simple and affordable way.

Workshop agenda:

  • EDGE overview
  • The EDGE self-assessment and certification process
  • Practical experience with the EDGE software
  • Tips and resources to help sell EDGE to developers and owners

Our EDGE Technical Workshops are geared toward project teams and consultants and cover the basics of EDGE, the certification process and how to use the EDGE software. Participants will receive tips and resources to bring EDGE to developers and owners and attend sessions designed to empower professionals to quickly evaluate and compare estimated costs for design strategies to bring EDGE to the market.
