USGBC - Hampton Roads Chapter Bird-Friendly Building Design (and USGBC's Pilot Credit 55)


This class explains how to recognize hazards to birds in the built environment. Case studies and a slide show illustrate many currently available strategies for reducing bird mortality and how bird-friendly design can add value to strategies often deployed to control heat and light or promote security. We review use of the LEED credit and important features of legislation. Techniques now in use for evaluating the relative threat level to birds of different materials are described, along with typical results.
