Timothy Hughes: The Future Of USGBC and LEED In The Wake Of Building Code Adoption

As state and local building code enforcement agencies adopt more stringent standards regarding energy efficiency and sustainability, will a third party certification body remain relevant? This is the question Timothy Hughes of Bean Kinney & Korman explores in an article at the Washington Business Journal.

The world of green construction will change soon with the anticipated adoption of green building codes. So what will happen to the U.S. Green Building Council as a result?

One thing is certain: The only constant is change. My bet is we can expect significant changes with regards to LEED and its position in the building universe.
