  1. 1. LEED-NB Certification for New Buildings Presentation #1 Burnet D. Brown RNV Ventures Prepared for Benchmark Built Monday, December 1, 2008
  2. 2. Points Required by LEED Rating !  Gives the following ratings: !   Certified 26 - 32 Points !   Silver 33 - 38 Points !   Gold 39 - 51 Points !   Platinum 52 - 69 Points RNV-2
  3. 3. Points Required by LEED Rating RNV-3
  4. 4. Weight Assigned by USGBC by Category LEED rating is determined by earning points for fulfilling requirements in the following six areas: 1.Sustainable Sites 2.Water Efficiency 3.Energy and Atmosphere Design 4.Materials and Resources 5.Indoor Environmental Quality 6.Innovation and Design Process RNV-4
  5. 5. LEED Points, Credits and Prerequisites Category Sustainable Water Materials Energy and Indoor Innovation Sites Efficiency and Atmosphere Environmental in Design Total Resources Quality (Optional) Prerequisites 1 0 1 3 2 0 7 Points 14 5 13 17 15 5 69 Credits 8 3 7 6 8 RNV-5

  7. 7. U.S. Energy Consumption by Infrastructure RNV-7
  8. 8. U.S. Energy Consumption by Infrastructure RNV-8
  9. 9. What are the Environmental Impacts of Buildings?* !  70% of electricity consumption !  39% of total energy use !  40% of raw materials use !  30% of greenhouse gas emissions !  30% of waste output !  12% of potable water consumption *Statistics provided by USGBC’s LEED for Product Manufacturers presentation, ©2005 RNV-9
  10. 10. How this relates to strategies for greening buildings… RNV-10
  11. 11. LEED Categories RNV-11
  12. 12. Sustainable Sites - Stormwater Management RNV-12
  13. 13. Stormwater Runoff and Parking Lot Pollution Where buildings are located near water sources it is important to mitigate the effects of stormwater runoff and parking lot pollution. Pervious pavers. Pervious pavers installed in the parking lot to allow stormwater to percolate into the ground and insure that stormwater runoff volumes are/were the same as “predevelopment levels.” RNV-13
  14. 14. RNV-14
  15. 15. Detention Ponds and Underground Separation Tanks You can create detention ponds to capture runoff. Underground separation tanks can be installed to filter sand and oil from stormwater prior to its release into the city’s stormwater system. RNV-15
  16. 16. Energy and Atmosphere RNV-16
  17. 17. Goal: Minimize energy used for heating, cooling and lighting. Summer. In the summer a night flush vent system replaces the hot air of the day with cool night time air. RNV-17
  18. 18. Radiant heat system. A radiant heat system using the highest efficiency commercial boilers and ceiling mounted radiant panels is used to warm buildings on cold days. RNV-18
  19. 19. Ceiling mounted radiant panels is used to warm buildings on cold days. R30 insulation in the roof. RNV-19
  20. 20. R12 insulation in the walls retain heat in the winter and keep buildings cool in the summer Roof mounted sky lights and smoke vents provide natural light to the interior and workspace. RNV-20
  21. 21. Photo sensors and motion detectors are used to shut off lights when area lighting is not necessary. RNV-21
  22. 22. Materials and Resources What percent of the building materials used will be made of recycled sources? RNV-22
  23. 23. Recycled materials in walls and floors. Concrete with recycled content flyash for walls and floors. See www.greenbuilder.com/sourcebook/Flyash.html Interior columns and roof structures. Recycled steel for interior columns and roof structures. RNV-23
  24. 24. Use local materials. Distance from building site. How far were materials shipped from? X% of the building materials and products used were manufactured within 500 miles of the construction site. X% of the construction materials derived from within 500 miles of the construction. RNV-24
  25. 25. FSC certified wood. Nearly 100% of the wood used in construction was FSC certified — meaning that it was certified as sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council. Low or No VOC finishes and carpets. The finishes and carpets contained low or no VOCs with no urea formaldehyde resins. RNV-25
  26. 26. Construction waste. 75% of the construction waste was recycled or salvaged. RNV-26
  27. 27. RNV-27
  28. 28. Buyer’s Decision-Making Cycle !  The factor driving the transition from one phase to the next is “performance oversupply”. RNV-28
