The landscape is rapidly changing for both voluntary and mandatory green building frameworks, and it is not always easy to keep up.  The LEED Green Building Rating System has been a dominant force in the industry for almost two decades, and while the USGBC has raised the bar over the years, the credit categories and the credit language have both been fairly consistent until the release of LEED v4. Around the time the marketplace was asked to adapt to the changes in LEED v4, the International Code Council released the International Green Construction Code (IgCC). Since this time, both frameworks have evolved and the design and construction community has been racing to keep up.

This presentation will provide an overview of key changes to the LEED v4 and LEED v4.1 rating systems, which are both currently available for use in the marketplace. Additionally, we will look at the evolution of the IgCC and investigate some of its key requirements and recent changes.


Presenter: Bryna Dunn, AICP, LEED Fellow; Vice President and Director of Sustainability Planning & Design for Moseley Architects

Bryna is a Vice President, serving as the Director of Sustainability Planning & Design, for Moseley Architects.  As such, she works closely with Moseley Architects’ architectural staff, engineering staff, and clients from the early planning and design phases through building construction to ensure that the most energy efficient and environmentally responsible design solutions are considered and implemented where feasible. She has over 100 projects in her portfolio that have completed LEED certification or IgCC compliance.


Bryna studied Biology and Environmental Science at the University of Virginia, and earned her Master’s Degree in City Planning (specializing in Environmental Issues) at Georgia Tech.  She also received a professional certificate from Harvard University for completing their Executive Education for Sustainability Leadership course.  Prior to joining the staff at Moseley Architects, Bryna worked as the Director of Environmental Research and Planning at William McDonough + Partners.  She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners, an Associate Member of the American Institute of Architects, and was named a LEED Fellow by the Green Building Certification Institute.  She also holds a “Green Classroom Professional” credential from the US Green Building Council. Bryna was the founding Chairperson for the James River Green Building Council, and served for 6 years on the Board of Directors for the Virginia Sustainable Building Network.  In addition, she served for 8 years as the Chair for the Sustainable Sites Technical Advisory Group and sat for 6 years on the LEED Steering Committee for the US Green Building Council, including serving as both vice chair and chair.  Bryna has “retired” from the LEED Faculty after 5 years of teaching, having trained thousands of professionals in the art and science of high performance building.
