  3. LEED • United States Green Building Council (USGBC) • LEED 2009 • Sustainable Sites • Water Efficiency • Energy & Atmosphere • Materials & Resources • Indoor Environmental Quality • Innovation in Design • Regional Priority

  4. LEED Scorecard

  5. Sustainable Sites • Construction Activity Pollution Prevention • Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) Plan • LEED requires the creation of an ESC plan for all construction activities associated with the project. • Must conform to the 2003 EPA Construction General Permit

  6. Sustainable Sites • Site Selection • Project cannot be developed on any of the following areas: • Prime Farmland • Previously undeveloped land with elevation lower than 5 feet above the elevation of the 100-year floodplain as defined by FEMA • Land specifically ID’d as habitat for any species on Federal or State threatened or endangered lists • Within 100 feet of any wetlands as defined by the US Code of Federal Regulations 40 CFR, Parts 230-233 and Part 22, and isolated wetlands or areas of special concern ID’d by state or local rule • Previously undeveloped land that is within 50 feet of a body of water • Land which prior to acquisition for the project was public parkland, unless land of equal or greater value as parkland is accepted in trade by the public landowner • Prevent sedimentation of storm sewer or receiving streams • Prevent polluting the air with dust and particulate matter

  7. Sustainable Sites • Development Density & Community Connectivity • Project must be developed on a previously developed site and within ½ mile of a residential zone or neighborhood with an average density of 10 units/acre net • Project must be developed on a site that is within ½ mile of at least 10 Basic Services and have pedestrian access to those services

  8. Sustainable Sites • Brownfield Redevelopment • Project must be developed on a site documented as contaminated or on a site defined as a Brownfield by a local, state, or federal agency

  9. Sustainable Sites • Public Transportation Access • Alternative Transportation • Bicycle storage and Changing Rooms • Residential and Academic • Alternative Transportation – Low Emission & Fuel Efficient Vehicles • Alternative Transportation Parking Capacity • Residential and Academic • Site Development, Protect or Restore Habitat • Requires that 50% of the site area previously developed be restored or protected with native or adapted vegetation

  10. Water Efficiency • Water Efficient Landscaping, No Potable Water Use or No Irrigation • In the Artificial Turf Option, ball field turf cooling is not considered irrigation • Water Use Reduction • Requires that water efficient plumbing fixtures be used for water closets, urinals, showers, restroom faucets, janitor sinks, and kitchen sinks (Energy Policy Act of 2005)

  11. Energy and Atmosphere • Fundamental Commissioning of the Building Energy Systems AND Enhanced Commissioning • Third party Commissioning Authority (CxA) will be involved throughout the design and construction project. • There are twelve (12) specific tasks that will be required as a part of this step:

  12. Energy and Atmosphere • Designate a Commissioning Authority as soon as possible, preferably before the start of construction documents • The CxA will document the Owner’s Project Requirements for the project • The Design Team will establish a Basis of Design for Cx services • The project team will work with the CxA to incorporate all Cx services into the construction documents • The CxA will conduct a commissioning design review prior to mid-construction documents • The CxA will develop and implement a commissioning plan • The CxA will review all contractor submittals applicable to systems being commissioned • The CxA will verify the installation and performance of commissioned systems • The CxA will develop a systems manual for all commissioned systems • The CxA will verify that the training requirements for all commissioned systems are completed at the end of construction • The CxA will complete a summary commissioning report • The CxA will review the building operation within 10 months after substantial completion and re-commission the building systems with the owner’s facilities staff

  13. Energy and Atmosphere • Minimum Energy Performance • Energy efficiency standards • Energy model will be completed for the project • All lighting, electrical, building envelope, and HVAC systems design and construction will be developed to provide an energy efficient system • Energy Policy Act of 2005 • UFC criteria requires a facility to perform 30% better than ASHRAE 90.1-2004 standards

  14. Energy and Atmosphere • Fundamental Refrigerant Management • Disallows usage of any CFC-based refrigerants • Enhanced Refrigerant Management • Disallows usage of any HCFC-based refrigerants as well as disallowing usage of any fire suppression systems with CFC’s, HCFC’s, or Halons • Measurement and Verification • Requires the development and implementation of measurement and verification plan to evaluate the building and energy system performance, water usage, lighting usage, and other elements of the energy efficiency established in EA Credit 1.

  15. Energy and Atmosphere • Green Power • Independent of the building design and construction and is entirely an owner-related credit • Requires that 35% of the building’s electricity be provided by a renewable energy source through a renewable energy contract (REC) for two years after occupancy

  16. Materials and Enclosure • Collection of Recyclables • Requires a program in the new facility that accommodates recycling of at minimum the following five items: • Glass • Plastic • Metals • Corrugated cardboard • Paper

  17. Materials and Enclosure • Construction Waste Management • The project development will include a construction site where the majority of the waste generated throughout the construction of the facility will actively utilize a construction waste management plan to manage all waste discarded from the site. • Recycling and salvaging effort to divert at least 75% (by weight or by volume) of all construction materials on the project site • Design effort will require this level of compliance by the construction team

  18. Materials and Enclosure • Recycled Content • The project development will include the conscious selection of building materials with recycled content materials utilized throughout the project • It will construct the building with no less than 20% recycled materials by material cost for all architectural products for the facility • Pre-consumer materials costs will be counted at ½ their value and post-consumer projects will be counted at full value in these calculations

  19. Materials and Enclosure • Certified Wood • Conscious selection of wood building materials that can be certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) Principles and Criteria for 50% of all wood building components. Calculated by cost of all permanently installed wood products for the project, which includes (but is not limited to) structural framing, general dimensional framing, flooring, sub-flooring, wood doors and finishes.

  20. Indoor Environmental Quality • Minimum Indoor Air Quality Performance • All mechanical ventilation systems shall be designed and constructed using the Ventilation Rate Procedure • System design will ensure that the minimum outdoor air ventilation rates will provide enhanced indoor air quality throughout the building • Environmental Tobacco Smoke Control

  21. Indoor Environmental Quality • Construction Indoor Air Quality Management Performance • Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Management Plan • IAQ requires that construction methods comply or exceed the Control Measures of the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association (SMACNA) IAQ Guidelines for Occupied Buildings Under Construction, 1995, Chapter 3

  22. Indoor Environmental Quality • Low-Emitting Materials • Indoor Chemical and Pollutant Control • Controllability of Systems • Daylight and Views

  23. Innovation and Design Process • Innovation in Design • Water Efficiency in Artificial Fields • Green Advantage Contractor Training • Public Education

  24. Regional Priority • Regional Materials • The project development will include the conscious selection of building materials that can be extracted and manufactured within a 500-mile radius of the project site to stimulate economic growth and to minimize the transportation costs and carbon emissions related to transporting materials over long distances to the project site.
