Case 2. Residential and Hospitality projects: Prohibit smoking in all common areas of the building. 6- Innovation and Design Process 7- Regional Priority The LEED Water Efficiency credits for Core and Sheel Promote the following measures: The LEED Sustainable Sites credits for Core and Sheel Promote the following measures: Facilities that use water efficiently can reduce costs through lower water use fees, lower sewage volumes to treat, lower capacity charges and limits.

Water efficiency measures in commercial buildings can easily reduce water usage by 30% or more.

Non-potable water volumes can be used forlandscape irrigation, toilet and urinal flushing, custodial purposes and
building systems The most effective strategy for minimizing the environmental impacts of material use is to reuse existing buildings.
Salvaged, recycled-content, local, and rapidly renewable materials all support the minimization of extraction, processing, transportation, and depletion of natural resources.
Reduce construction debris by recycling and reusing these materials. Prevention of air quality problems is generally much less expensive than cleaning up after these problems occur.

IEQ issues have the potential to enhance the indoor environment and optimize interior spaces for building occupants.

IEQ strategies reduce potential liability for design team members, increase resale value, and increase productivity of building occupants. Because some environmental issues are unique to a local, USGBC regional councils have identified distinct environmental zones within their areas and allocate six credits to encourage design teams to focus on regional priorities. A project that earns a regional priority credit automatically earns one point in addition to any points awarded for that credit. Up to four extra points can be earned in this way. For Certification Projects MUST meet:

OR calculated on average for the year 12 Secure Bicycle Racks 2 showers and changing facilities 348 Occpants The stormwater management plan MUST include a stream channel protection and quantity control strategies. Intent: To limit disruption and pollution of natural water flows by managing storm water runoff. BMPs must be capable of removing 80% of the average annual postdevelopment total suspended solids (TSS), in compliance with state or local standards, OR with Washington State Department of Ecology TARP standards. roads, sidewaks, courtyards and parking lots existing tree canopy or within 5 years of landscape installation coverd by solar panels that produce energy used to offset some nonrenewable resource use or structures that have an SRI of al teast 29 OPTION 1. Construct 100% of nonroof impervious surfaces with high-albedo or open-grid paving, or will be shaded within 5 years.

OPTION 2. Place 100% of parking space under cover. OPTION 2: All opening in the envelope with a direct line of sight to any nonemergency luminares must have shielding between 11pm and 5am. controlled/closed automatically for a resultant transmittance of less than 10% (not including irrigation) Conduct comprehensive envelope commissioning. Need to demonstrate the standards and protocol by which the envelope was commissioned.
Projects that require the full scope of commissioning for all the tenant spaces may be considered for an innovation point. Minimum percentage building

The minimum percentage debris to be recycled or salvaged for each point Configure all monitoring equipment to generate an alarm when the air flow values or CO2 levels vary by 10% or more from the design values via either a building automation system alarm to the building operator or a visual or audiable alert to the building occupants. Those with a design occupant density of 25 people or more per 1,000 sf. As determined by IEQp1: Minimum Indoor Air Quality Performance Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning National Contractors Association IAQ Guidelines For Occupied Building Under Construction, 2nd Edition 2007, ANSI/SMACNA 008 -2008 (Chapter 3). Green Seal Standard GS-11, Paints, 1st edition Green Seal Standard GC-03, Anti-Corrosive Paints, 2nd Edition South Coast Air Quality Management District, Architectural Coating Paints and coatings used on the interior of the building must comply with the following creteria as applicable to the project scope. Core & Shell HVAC duct design for tenant spaces are typically incomplete. The intent of this credit in LEED C&S is to provide building HVAC systems that can be expanded to allow for high degree of occupant control. Some system types make this credit easier to achieve and document than others. Buildings that use an overhead variable air volume system will have to demonstrate that it is possible for the system to provide enough control points for 50% of the occupants. The Core and Shell base building mechanical system must allow for the tenant build out to meet the requirements of this credit. Project teams that design their project for mechanical ventilation that do not purchase or install the mechanical system are not eligible to achive this credit. Through 1 of the 4 options, achieve daylighting in at least 75% of regularly occupied areas. In all cases, provide glare control devices to avoid high-contrast situation that could impede visual tasks.

Temporary irrigation can be provided for establishment and for extreme drought conditions using maintenance hose bibb or water trucks.
Provide native and/or adaptive species, while minimizing turf areas in order to maximize survivability of plantings whitin the regional climatic conditions.
System design in concert with other strategies, such as rainwater collection or dew harvesting (condensate from A/C) Need to establish water base line, as per Water Questionnaire.
This might be a good project to collect rainwater from roof and air conditioner condensate to use for flushing toilets.
Use water conserving flashes and/or waterless urinals.  ECM-1: Per ASHRAE Standards, the window assembly U-value is 0.55. Selected glass for windows and curtain walls (Solarban 70#2) with center of glass U-value of 0.28 and 2.25” aluminum frames without thermal brick (Window assembly U-value = 0.346) is a good option for all parts of the proposed design.

 ECM-2: Per ASHRAE Table 6.8.1A Minimum Efficiency Requirement for Baseline building is EER 9.8. System efficiency of the selected HVAC systems is EER 10.5 which is more efficient than the baseline. This selected EER has been used in the simulation.

 ECM-3: Per ASHRAE Standards the baseline design’s roof R-value is R-20. The design case R-vale for roofs (including forth floor) assumed to be R-22 (Built up roof + 4” of Polystyrene, R-5 per inch).

 ECM-4: The existing exterior wall (South elevation) insulation value is R-3 (8” Common Brick). This value should be increased to R-16 (Minimum per ASHRAE 90.1-2007 Standards). Adding 2” of Polyisocyanurate + Insulation Bard and Gypsum Board to the existing wall section details will provide the suggested R-value.

 ECM-5: Reduce internal lighting power density by a minimum of 20% from the ASHRAE Standard.

 ECM-6: Control interior lighting of all spaces with windows. At least 50% lights should be controlled to 50 foot-candle (fc). Based on the simulation results, for this project energy modeler recommends the following ECMs be implemented:
1) ECM-1: Install high efficient windows with maximum 0.346 assembly U-Value.
2) ECM-2: Select HVAC systems with higher efficiency than the ASHRAE Standards. System with at least 10.5 EER.
3) ECM-3: Assume 4” of rigid insulation to the existing roof section details on the fourth. R-Value of the floor assembly of the fifth floor should not be less than R-22.
4) ECM-4: Increase the R-value of existing south exterior wall to R-21.
5) ECM-5: Reduce internal lighting power density by a minimum of 20% from the ASHRAE Standard.
6) ECM-6: Control interior lighting of all spaces with windows. At least 50% lights should be controlled to 50 foot-candle (fc). 30% Baseline Design, “As Is” orientation and evenly distributed windows per ASHRAE 90.1- 2007, NE view.
