Inscape Leed Presentation

  1. 1. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Inscape Marketing Department
  2. 2. Overview • What is LEED? • Why is LEED important? • What are the fees? • How is LEED certification achieved? • How can we contribute towards LEED?
  3. 3. Why LEED? • Definitive standards for a “green building” • High performance buildings that are sustainable • Healthy workplace for incumbents • Resource efficient (Air, Water, Land) • Cost less to operate
  4. 4. LEED Categories
  5. 5. What is LEED? • First LEED pilot program was started in 1998 • Regulated by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) • Evaluates environmental performance from a whole buildings perspective over the building’s lifecycle • LEED certifications are awarded on A PROJECT basis
  6. 6. Primary Project Categories Commercial Interiors (CI) New Construction (NC) Existing Buildings (EB)
  7. 7. Certified Projects? NC CI EB Version 2.2 2.2 2.2 Registered 2046 348 197 Certified 7 93 20 Percentage Negligible 27% 11% * Certification information is based on 2007 projects in the United States
  8. 8. Identifying a project? LEED Rating System NC CI EB A Building Event Multiple Interior Projects A Process Design & Construction Design & Construction Life of the Building Capital Budget Capital Budget Operating Budget
  9. 9. What are the Fees? NC, CI, EB, < 50 000 sq ft 50 000 – 500 000 sq ft > 500 000 sq ft Core and Shell Fixed Rate Based on sq. ft. Fixed Rate & Schools Design Review Members* $ 1250 $ 0.025 / sq. ft $ 12 500 Non-Members* $ 1500 $ 0.03 / sq. ft $ 15 000 Construction Review Members* $ 500 $ 0.01 / sq. ft $ 5000 Non-Members* $ 750 $ 0.015 / sq. ft $ 7500 * USGBC/CaGBC members get a discount when applying for project certification
