Printing with a laser printer will give the best printing results.
  26. 26. RECOMMENDATIONS  Have trained staff available as resource  LEED AP, energy background  Work directly with Developers to help them understand green building & actual certification process  Make suggestions  Revise codes that are incompatible with green building and/or prevent developer from achieving full green potential  Street widths  Lighting standards  Renewable (PV)
