Transcript of USGBC & LEED

& using LEED Online LEED Certification Process What is LEED (what does it stand for)? First Question What does LEED do? Rating Systems LEED Training Reference Guides Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design LEED Development Building
Certification Professional
Credentials Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. LEED provides Third Party verification that a building or community was designed and built with environmental impacts in mind. "Third Party", what does that mean??? this means that an outside party verifies certification... not the builder or architect What are their roles? Planning
Registration
Application
Preliminary Review
Preliminary Review response (clarification)
Final Review
Accept or appeal
Appeal Review (if applicable)
Certification or denial Certification Process for a Building
Workshop where participants combine & brainstorm together
LEED Goals are communicated to all team members
Integrated design is discussed
Credit synergies are discussed
First draft of the LEED scorecard, preliminary rating and defining the roles of each member Planning Hold a LEED Charrette Register during the pre-design phase of the project.
Must follow MPR Guidelines (Minimum Program Requirements)
Identify project team members Registration LEED Online Who else has access to LEED online?
What else happens with LEED online? Application After registration, the prjoect administrator will have access to LEED online? All other team members... anyone the project admin assigns (in our case, the whole class).
Submit all documentation, including:
forms,
LEED documents
pictures.
Through LEED Online, project teams can manage:
project details,
complete documentation requirements for LEED credits and prerequisites,
upload supporting files,
receive reviewer feedback
earn LEED certification.
LEED Online provides a common space where members of a project team can work together to document compliance with the LEED rating system.
With the exception of projects registered under LEED for Homes, all projects must be certified using LEED Online.

This is also where CIRs are submitted (Credit Interpretation Request/Response)... don't forget there's a cost for every CIR submitted. Split Review: the project team submits documentation during the design phase of a project. GBCI reviews the credits but no credits are awarded at this point. A second review is performed after construction.
Combined review: The design and construction review of an entire building is submitted all at the same time. Once a project's payment has been recieved, the process can begin. What's the advantage of a split review? Each prerequisite and credit are updated with one of the following status: Design Stage Reivew Anticipated- The project team can assume the credit will be achieved
Clarify- More info is needed
Denied- The requirements have not been met. Each prerequisite and credit are either awarded or not: Construction Stage Reivew Achieved- The credit/prereq has been met.
Denied- The requirements have not been met.

You have 30 days to appeal any comments from the USGBC... you pay $500 for each appeal.

After the final GBCI review, GBCI will award the appropriate certification level based on the number of credits achieved. CIR's It's very important to remember that you never submit drawings or any confidential information with CIR's.

"Project Teams shall not submit Project CIR requests in the format of a letter. Inquiries shall contain only the specific issues and the essential background information necessary for a ruling. Project CIR requests shall not contain in excess of 600 words or alternatively 5000 characters including spaces." Questions:
After the initial design phase review, what happens if any changes are made to the project?
Can new credits be added during the construction review that weren't part of the design review? LEED Online... what does it do? Document Changes YES! Who is the "Third Party"? The USGBC & GBCI After the final review the GBCI awards the appropriate certification level based on points earned from the following LEED categories: Final Reivew SS= 26 pts
WE= 10 pts
EA= 35 pts
MR= 14 pts
IEQ= 15 pts
ID= 6 pts
RP= 4pts These are considered bonus points What do these mean? Each prerequisite and credit are either awarded or not: Construction Stage Reivew Achieved- The credit/prereq has been met.
Denied- The requirements have not been met.

You have 30 days to appeal any comments from the USGBC... you pay $500 for each appeal.

After the final GBCI review, GBCI will award the appropriate certification level based on the number of credits achieved. Questions:
After the initial design phase review, what happens if any changes are made to the project?
Can new credits be added during the construction review that weren't part of the design review? Document Changes YES! Application Important Vocabulary Choosing a building's site and managing that site during construction are important considerations for a project’s sustainability.
The Sustainable Sites category discourages development on previously undeveloped land;
minimizes a building's impact on ecosystems and waterways; encourages regionally appropriate landscaping;
rewards smart transportation choices;
controls stormwater runoff; and
reduces erosion, light pollution, heat island effect and construction-related pollution. Sustainable Sites Embodied Energy: total energy consumed in the acquisition and processing of raw materials, including manufacturing, transportation, and final installation. Green Building: The integration of environmental considerations into building design and construction and considers the entire life cycle of the building.
. The limits of a specific land’s capability to support people and their activities. Carrying Capacity The total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, or product. Carbon footprint Life Cycle Assessment Determines the environmental and resource impacts of a material, a product, or even a whole building over its entire life. Building Commissioning: Building Commissioning is a systematic and documented process of ensuring that the owner's operational needs are met, building systems perform efficiently, and building operators are properly trained.
. Sediment Eroded soil that is suspended, transported, and deposited by moving water or wind.

. Erosion Process of displacing and transporting soil particles by the action of gravity.

. Green Field Property that has experienced little or no impact from human development.
(Previously Undeveloped) Brownfield Abandoned, idled, or underused industrial and commercial facilities where redevelopment is complicated by environmental contamination. Hard Cost Expenditures for the actual construction of the project, concrete, masonry, carpet, and roofing LEED Credit: An optional LEED Green Building Rating System Component whose achievement results in the earning of points towards certification. Green Building: The integration of environmental considerations into building design and construction and considers the entire life cycle of the building.
. The ability to model a building’s financial performance over its life cycle to justify measures that may require greater initial capital investment but yield significantly lower operational costs over time. Life Cycle Costing A Prerequisite for LEED Hard Cost The cost for services outside of the construction site, engineering fees, permits, legal fees, and insurance. Think of it like the nutrition label on a box of crackers: LEED provides the same kind of important detail about the green aspects of a building that, taken together, deliver higher performance. For Example THE END LEED Prerequisite: A required LEED Green Building Rating component whose achievement is mandatory and does not earn any points.
