LeDUC & Dexter Inc. - The Premier Plumbing Contractor In The North Bay

"University" of Green Building




“I’ve got over 50 pages of homework for our next class”, says Tom LeDuc, President & CEO of LeDuc & Dexter, “It’s time to hit the books!”  LeDuc is referring to the Green Building Professional Certificate Program he and approximately 20 other building professionals enrolled in and started attending in July.  Classes are being held at Autodesk in San Rafael and Fireman’s Fund Insurance in Novato.

Longview Education Associates and the U.S. Green Building Council – Redwood Empire Chapter, which has over 200 members, are offering the program.   Pete Gang, AIA, LEED-AP and Bruce Hammond, LEED-AP, CEO Hammond & Company, creators of the highly successful Green Building Certificate Program at Sonoma State University, are facilitating the six-month program.

The program covers passive solar strategies, green materials, clean energy technologies, indoor environmental quality, integrated design and low impact development.  Other topics include performance contracting, a mechanism to implement energy efficiency improvements with minimal up-front costs. It uses savings resulting from the efficiency project to pay for the work over a period of time.

Aside from the educational value and certification he will receive, Tom LeDuc sees another big benefit from the program.  “This is a huge networking opportunity – about 25% of the class is architects, some of whom we have worked with in the past.”  LeDuc & Dexter has also worked with Hammond & Company on a LEED-certified commercial project.
