  • The USGBC formed a Committee of architects builders and engineers to establish the policies and procedures for the LEED program. The program eventually evolved into Six categories: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy &amp; Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation and Design Process. LEED v3 added Regional Priority as a Seventh category.
  • LEED carries four certification levels with point ranges as shown. There are total of 110 points available in the LEED program. Points are obtained by fulfilling the requirements further broken down within the 6 (now 7) categories including the design, implementation, and documentation of these requirements. A project is submitted to the USGBC with “anticipated” credits, and is not considered a “Certified” project until the project is complete, including any commissioning activities, and the USGBC can confirm that all requirements have been met. Certification typically can take up to a year to achieve…..
  • Because of the large variation in the types of projects, several specific programs have been outlined for: core and shell, new construction, schools, neighborhood development, retail, health care, homes, commercial interiors
  • What does Green Advantage have to do with LEED?? Green Advantage provides a national certification exam for construction management professionals, contractors, trades people, architects, real estate professionals, field personnel, and all other professionals interested in documenting their green building knowledge.

    19. 19. Bioswales: <ul><li>Man-made channels that retain and treat storm water. </li></ul><ul><li>Bioswales are built wide, shallow, and nearly level. This allows storm water to soak into the ground. A variety of plant materials removes pollutants in storm water through natural processes. Bioswales fall under the category of bioretention. </li></ul>
    20. 20. Bioswales: http://www.green-rated.org
    21. 21. Building Orientation: <ul><li>Direction the building faces. </li></ul><ul><li>In most climate zones in the northern hemisphere, the long side of a building should be on the south side. The largest area of windows should also be on the South side. If facing the South, there is usually enough roof area for solar water heating and PV (photo voltaic) panels. South-facing glass can be easily optimized through shading and glazing for passive solar heating. Though a southern exposure is ideal, the building can be oriented up to 30 degrees away from due south without losing much energy benefit. </li></ul>
