Phase 1: Students measure on sight and draw a model of existing conditions. Pre – Design Drawings • Floor Plan • Wall Elevations • 3D Model screen shots & walk through • LEED Strategies for Green Building Renovation
The following Architectural drawings are cut from the3D model and put into layout where the title block isinserted and the scale is applied. At this point, important detail dimensions areadded.

Phase 2: Students consider which LEED Rating System best fits their project. Rating Systems: 1. LEED for New Construction 2. LEED for Existing Buildings 3. LEED for Commercial Interiors 4. LEED for Core and Shell 5. LEED for Homes 6. LEED for Schools 7. LEED for Retail 8. LEED for Healthcare 9. LEED for Neighborhood DevelopmentThe Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) standard, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)
Phase 2, part b: Once the Rating System has been selected,students first meet ‘Pre-requisites,’ and then consider how tomaximize their potential achievable credits from each ‘Category’in order to earn highest level of certification for their project. LEED for Commercial Interiors Certified 40-49 points Silver 50-59 points Gold 60-79 points Project Categories: Platinum 80 pts and above 1. Sustainable Sites (21 pts) 2. Water Efficiency (11 pts) 3. Energy and Atmosphere (37 pts) 4. Materials and Resource (14 pts) 5. Indoor Environmental Quality (17 pts)

Phase 3: After the presentation drawings are viewed, discussions are initiated with the client to consider all ideas and possibilities for the renovation. • The Conversion of existing use to desired new use of space. • The additions and subtraction of walls, electrical, plumbing, windows or doors, floors and ceilings.
• The Use & re-use of existing materials.• The LEED benefits are then discussed to fully understand the enhanced value of the project through sustainable design solutions.
After the detailed discussions . . .• These ideas are drawn into the existing model and presented again to assure clear communication between client and designer/builder.• Once agreed upon, cost estimates are made and submitted with revised drawings and specifications.• Contracts are drawn and signed and project work is then scheduled.
