  3. 3. Learning Objectives 1. Identify the new requirements of LEED v3 2. Understand what the transition to LEED v3 will mean for you 3. Recognize the benefits and drawbacks of the new version 4. Examine the new credentialing system
  4. 4. LEED v3 Changes • Rating Systems • Credentialing • Certification
  5. 5. Rating System Changes • Realignment of Systems • Credit Weighting • Regional Priority Category • Points Possible • Minimum Program Requirements • Standards Updates • Prerequisite and Credit Changes
  6. 6. Rating System Organization
  7. 7. LEED Focuses (Categories)
  8. 8. LEED Makeup LEED for New Construction v2.2 LEED for New Construction v3 69 points 100 + 10 points
  9. 9. Certification Levels
  10. 10. Minimum Program Requirements 1. Must Comply with All Environmental Laws 2. Must be a Complete, Permanent Building or Space 3. Must Use a Reasonable Site Boundary 4. Must meet Minimum Floor Area Requirements (1000 SF) 5. Must Comply with Minimum Occupancy Rates (1) 6. Must Share Building Energy and Water Use Data 7. Must Comply with a Minimum Building to Site Ratio (2%)
  11. 11. Standards Updates • ASHRAE 90.1-2007 (energy) • ASHRAE 62.1-2007 (ventilation) • SMACNA construction IAQ plan is now the 2008 version
  12. 12. Prerequisite Changes Water Use Reduction: 20% Reduction Minimum Energy Performance: 10% (5%) improvement over ASHRAE 90.1- 2007 Additional prescriptive path guides Minimum Indoor Air Quality ASHRAE 62.1-2007 Minimum Acoustical Performance: No more STC requirements! NRC of 0.70 required in classrooms Reverb time of 1.5 or less in large spaces
  13. 13. Credit Changes SS Credit 4.3: Alternate Transport, LE & FE Vehicle sharing program (NC only) SS Credit 8: Light Pollution Reduction 50% interior lighting reduction option, exemption for one entry light SS Credit 10 (schools only): Joint Facility Use Parking Lot can be a shared facility WE Credit 3: Water Use Reduction 30%, 35%, 40% EA Credit 1: Enhanced Energy Performance 12% (8%) to 48% (44%) improvement, 1-19 points possible EA Credit 2: On-Site Renewable Energy 1% to 13%, 1-7 points possible
  14. 14. Credit Changes IEQ Credit 3.2: IAQ, Before Occupancy IAQ testing formaldehyde level has been lowered IEQ Credit 4.3: Low-emitting flooring Now applies to all flooring, not just carpet IEQ Credit 5: Indoor Pollutant Control Must provide hazardous waste containment IEQ Credit 8.2: Daylight Ratio of window to floor area instead of daylight factor, new combination option IEQ Credit 9 (Schools): Acoustics Only one point available based on STC and background noise ID Credit 1: Innovation in Design Only 3 points can be for Exemplary Performance
  15. 15. Next Steps New Projects: All new, unregistered projects will now be LEED v3 projects Existing Projects: Keep your project in the old version of LEED (NC v2.2, Schools v1, etc.) Transition to LEED v3, free of charge, before Jan. 1, 2010
  16. 16. Credential Changes 3 Tier Credentialing System: Green Associate Requires work in a sustainability related field, work on a LEED project or attending a course on sustainable building. Geared for anyone who wants abroad understanding of sustainable design. LEED AP + Specialty Requires LEED Project Involvement. Geared for the design and construction industry. LEED Fellow Requirements yet to be defined
  17. 17. Next Steps If you are a LEED AP: • Remain a Legacy LEED AP • Become a LEED AP+ Agree to Continuing Education Take a Specialty Exam If you want to become a LEED AP: • Take the LEED Green Associate Exam • Take a LEED AP+ Specialty Exam
  18. 18. Certification Changes • Certification now handled by GBCI • New version of LEED Online
