What is LEED?
LEED stands for:
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
LEED was Developed by the United States Green Building Council as a guide for building owners to help protect the environment and save money in the long term by implementing specific environmentally friendly and cleaner building guidelines for construction and design.
Benefits of LEED Certification Benefits for buildings/owners: • LEED Rating System is flexible. not ‗one-size-fits-all‘ approach • Lower energy costs • Higher employee comfort and work output • ―Building green is cost-effective and makes financial sense‖ • Environmental responsibility • Increased resale value • Nationally accepted benchmark • Short payback period • Identifies highly efficient buildings • Recognizes building design • Whole building approach • Increases building performance Benefits for individuals: • Listing on USGBC website of LEED APs • LEED AP Certificate • Assist project with one point • Valuable & marketable credential .

LEED for New Construction ratings are awarded according to the following point thresholds. buildings must meet all prerequisites in the Rating System and earn a minimum of 40 points (LEED-NC). The flexibility of the Rating System allows building owners. LEED 2009 .
recreational facilities. The LEED-NC Rating System promotes improved practices in: • • • Site selection and development Water and energy use Environmentally preferred construction products. including: office buildings. high-rise residential buildings. finishes and furnishings Waste stream management Indoor environmental quality Innovation in sustainable design and construction • • • .New Construction The LEED for New Construction (Building Design + Construction) Rating System is designed to guide and distinguish high-performance commercial and institutional projects. government buildings. manufacturing plants and laboratories.
improvements and maintenance on a consistent scale. with the goal of maximizing operational efficiency while minimizing environmental impacts. • LEED for Existing Buildings addresses whole-building cleaning and maintenance issues (including chemical use). and systems upgrades.Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance • The LEED for Existing Buildings Rating System helps building owners and operators measure operations. or Core & Shell. recycling programs. exterior maintenance programs. • It can be applied both to existing buildings seeking LEED certification for the first time and to projects previously certified under LEED for New Construction. . Schools.
• It is the recognized system for certifying highperformance green interiors that are healthy. . are less costly to operate and maintain. productive places to work. • LEED for Commercial Interiors gives the power to make sustainable choices to tenants and designers. and have a reduced environmental footprint. who do not always have control over whole building operations.Commercial Interiors Ratings • LEED for Commercial Interiors is the green benchmark for the tenant improvement market.
developers and new building owners who want to address sustainable design for new core and shell construction. • LEED for Core & Shell is designed to be complementary to the LEED for Commercial Interiors rating system. . • Core and shell covers base building elements such as structure. envelope and the HVAC system. builders. owners and tenants.Core and Shell Ratings • LEED for Core & Shell is a green building rating system for designers. as both rating systems establish green building criteria for developers.
water and natural resources. • The net cost of owning a LEED home is comparable to that of owning a conventional home. reduced greenhouse gas emissions. and is healthier and more comfortable for the occupants. creates less waste. • A green home uses less energy. and less exposure to mold. • Benefits of a LEED home include lower energy and water bills. mildew and other indoor toxins.LEED for Homes • LEED for Homes is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes. .
• LEED certification provides independent. urbanism and green building into the first national system for neighborhood design. sustainable development. third-party verification that a development‘s location and design meet accepted levels of environmentally responsible. .LEED for Neighborhood Development • LEED for Neighborhood Development is a rating system that integrates the principles of smart growth. • Currently in a pilot program.
. (Based on LEED for New Construction) • LEED for Healthcare is a rating system developed to meet the unique needs of the health care market. (Based on LEED for New Construction) • LEED for Retail recognizes the unique nature of the retail environment and addresses the different types of spaces that retailers need for their distinctive product lines. Retail • LEED for Schools is a rating system that recognizes the unique nature of the design and construction of K-12 schools. Currently in a pilot program. Healthcare. including inpatient/outpatient/long term care facilities.LEED for Schools.
