Transcript of LEED for Contractors

LEED for Contractors What is LEED? LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Iconic and innovative buildings Integrated design process (IDP) Reduced operating costs Competitive differentiation LEED Benefits for PCL? Structure Prerequisites - Mandatory to achieve LEED certification Credits - Optional to obtain points that contribute to LEED certification Contractor's Role in achieving LEED Contractually obligated to achieve LEED certification
Often times, there will be a penalty if the project fails to achieve LEED certification. The following team members of the GC will be involved with the LEED process: Estimator
Project Coordinator
Project Manager Superintendents SSp1 - Construction Activity Pollution Prevention Erosion and Sedimentation Control During construction, erosion and run-off from site must be minimized. 1. Working with the Civil Consultant, identify risk areas and outline appropriate control measures. 2. Implement control measures and inform site personnel. 3. Inspect weekly and after rain events and perform any corrective action required. Superintendents MRc2 - Construction Waste Management During construction, waste sent to landfill must be minimized. Superintendents IEQc3.1 - Construction IAQ Management Plan - During Construction Reduce indoor air quality (IAQ) problems resulting from construction process. During construction, meet or exceed the recommended guidelines of SMACNA. Superintendents Other Construction-related credits Superintendents IEQc3.2 - Construction IAQ Management Plan - Before Occupancy Reduce indoor air quality (IAQ) problems resulting from construction process. Projects typically perform a flush-out (air testing also available) RECAP Must educate all trades early in the process for the LEED credits they are involved in
Start up meetings and weekly trade meetings are a great place to review and enforce LEED requirements
On going monitoring is critical - a mistake made during construction can greatly affect the ability to meet LEED requirements
Perform arbitrary checks of products installed to ensure compliance with LEED Interested in learning more? LEED GA and AP course - check the

Thank you! 2. ; it is a voluntary, market-based rating system that is used to help the building design process to set certain environmental and health related goals. It will have a third party review to determine the building's achievement with respect to its design goals. Reduced operating costs through on-site recycling, preference for regional suppliers, better materials management (less waste, increase re-use/salvaged), etc. Competitive differentiation as PCL grows its portfolio of LEED projects and shows leadership in the expanding field of sustainability Integrated design process (IDP) increases synergies, helps reduce risk of errors, deficiencies, and project over-runs Be involved in projects with iconic and innovative buildings The GC will be contractually obligated to achieve LEED certification, usually with a desired certification level. Often times, there will be a penalty (typically $2M) if the project fails to achieve LEED certification. Prevent loss of soil during construction by stormwater runoff and/or wind erosion, including protecting topsoil by stockpiling for reuse.
Prevent Sedimentation of storm sewer or receiving streams.
Prevent polluting the air with dust and particulate matter. Work with project coordinator to establish strategy/enforcement program to divert waste
Establish a sorting area for the waste collection and select a qualified waste hauler
Clearly identify each bin with appropriate signage
Divert at least 50% of construction, demolition and land clearing waste
Inform trades of the waste management strategy and review during weekly trades meeting Toronto District currently diverts on average 85% of the waste generated on our projects. Did you know? 5 Areas:
HVAC Protection - wrap/protect all unused HVAC material to be installed; install filters for operating HVAC equipment with a rating of MERV-8 or better
Source Control - Use materials that have low-toxicity levels or none at all
Pathway interruption - Isolate areas of work to prevent contamination of clean/occupied spaces.
Housekeeping - Project teams should institute cleaning activities designed to control contaminants in building space during construction and before occupancy.
Scheduling - Should schedule activities to minimize the disruption of operations in the occupied portions of the building. Sequence construction activities carefully over the duration of the project to minimize the impact on IAQ. IEQc4.1-4.4 - Low Emitting Materials
be aware of adhesives/sealants and paints/coatings used within the interior of the building and the VOC limits; verify compliance by the sub-trades
inspect and verify that all flooring systems installed within the interior of the building meet LEED requirements
inspect and verify that all composite wood and agrifiber products used on the interior of the building must contain no added urea-formaldehyde resins

MRc3 - Materials Reuse
work with project team to creatively reuse/salvage any materials left from demolition and construction
verify that specified reused materials have been installed, and confirm the integrity of the salvaged materials

MRc4 - Recycled Content
MRc5 - Regional Material
MRc6 - Rapidly Renewable Material
MRc7 - Certified Wood

SSc5.1 - Protect or Restore Habitat
ensure that all disturbance boundaries are established and clearly fenced off or protected
plan to restore any degraded areas to their natural state

WEc3.1 - Water Use Reduction
verify that proper low-flow fixtures are being installed IEQc4.1-4.4 - Low Emitting Materials MRc3 - Materials Reuse MRc4 - Recycled Content MRc5 - Regional Material MRc6 - Rapidly Renewable Material MRc7 - Certified Wood WEc3.1 - Water Use Reduction SSc5.1 - Protect or Restore Habitat SSc7.1-7.2 - Heat Island Effect IEQc5 - Indoor Chemical and Pollutant Source Control

LEED 262: uccess with Campus and Multiple Building Certification

MORE INFO Coordinators
1. Coordinate with civil engineer to identify and adopt a plan that responds to rain events and other activities. Incorporate this plan into contract documents and specifications. 2. Inform stake holders of the E&SC plan at the project start-up meeting. 3. Submit copies of the phased site plan(s) and monthly inspection checklists to the LEED consultant.
