LEED ND Pilot Program

  1. 1. © BSC Group 2007 LEED-ND Pilot Program ND LEED Neighborhood Development (LEED (LEED- ND) Pilot Rating System released draft in 2005, revised version in 2007 Joint effort by USGBC, CNU, & NRDC Combined principles of smart growth, new urbanism, and green buildings “Bring buildings together into a neighborhood, and relate the neighborhood to its larger region and landscape”
  2. 2. © BSC Group 2007 LEED-ND Pilot Rating System ND 4 Categories: – Smart Location & Linkage (30) – Neighborhood Pattern & Development (39) – Green Construction & Technology (31) – Innovation & Design Process (6) 106 Possible Points – 40/50/60/80 breakdown for Certified/Silver/Gold/Platinum Several Difficult Prerequisites
  3. 3. © BSC Group 2007 BSC LEED-ND Pilot Application ND Project: Village at Taylor Pond, a mixed-use development in Bedford, MA (15 miles north of Boston) 188 apartments; 64K sf office; 27K sf retail Previously developed site in an industrial corridor Project recently received approvals from Town and State, under construction

  5. 5. © BSC Group 2007
  6. 6. © BSC Group 2007
  7. 7. © BSC Group 2007 Smart Location & Linkage Wetland & Water Body Conservation – Problem Prerequisite Preferred Location – Heavily Favors Previously Developed Sites & Infill Sites Reduced Auto Dependence – Difficult w/out transit Housing & Jobs Proximity – 90 jobs w/in ½ mile walk
  8. 8. © BSC Group 2007 Smart Location & Linkage Street Network Grid Density Calculation Mapping of Open Space, Bicycle Routes, Trails, Parks, Transit Locations Wetland/Conservation Areas, Jobs, Uses
  9. 9. © BSC Group 2007
  10. 10. © BSC Group 2007 Neighborhood Pattern & Development Compact Development Prereq – 0.5 FAR Non-Res – 7 units/acre Residential Compact Development Credit – Denser = More Points Diversity of Uses – W/in ½ mi walk Diversity of Housing Types – Score = 1- ∑ (n/N)2
  11. 11. © BSC Group 2007 Neighborhood Pattern & Development Affordable & Reduced Parking Credits: Difficult Walkable Streets – Several points available – Entrances, windows, speed Access to Public Space & Active Public Spaces – Park, green plaza or square – Playfields, soccer/baseball, multi-use trail, rec center or gym w/ outdoor facilities – Golf? Gun club?
  12. 12. © BSC Group 2007 Green Construction & Technology LEED Certified Solar Orientation – Requires early consideration Recycled Content – Reuse concrete Construction & Comprehensive Waste Management
  13. 13. © BSC Group 2007 Innovation & Design Process Innovation in Design – Boardwalk and Offsite Sidewalk Connections Reduced footprint
  14. 14. © BSC Group 2007 LEED-ND Summary ND Offers a new opportunity for mixed mixed-use developments to become certified LEED projects Residential is an important component More site focused; redevelopment bias Smaller incremental costs to become LEED certified (?) Pilot program should help to further refine rating system, especially for prerequisites – Wetland & Waterbody Conservation: needs improvement – Compact Development: lower hurdle, shift to credit points
