Equivalence in O 430.2B June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop12
Waivers for LEED in O 430.2B June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop13 Section 4(d) : In no case will a waiver permit any construction or renovation project that does not meet or exceed statutory goals, including the achievement of credits to exceed the ASHRAE 90.1-2004 standard by at least 30 percent, and address each of the five elements of the Guiding Principles.
Equivalence in O 430.2B (EP) June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop14 Section 4(b) requires an Executable Plan to achieve O 430.2B goals for each site FEMP annually distributes Executable Plan preparation guidance The August 2009 version further defined equivalency
History of the Guiding Principles June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop15 Full Title: Guiding Principles for Federal Leadership in High Performance and Sustainable Buildings Most signed in late Jan. 2006 Under three pages Tasks an Interagency Sustainability Working Group to provide technical guidance and updates for the Guiding Principles.
Executive Orders and the GPs EO 13423 EO 13514 June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop16 January 24, 2007 Section 2(f)(i): ensure that new construction and major renovation of agency buildings comply with the Guiding Principles....

Meeting the Guiding Principles NC / MR through Sustainability Standards ASHRAE 189.1-2009 (a Standard) LEED NC 3.0 (a Certification) June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop26
About ASHRAE 189.1-2009 June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop27 Full name: Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings Developed with support from USGBC and IES Published in January 2010 Optional compliance path for the ICCs draft International Green Construction Code 30% more energy efficient than ASHRAE 90.1-2007 according to NREL study Information on Standard 189.1: www.ashrae.org/greenstandard Information on International Green Construction Code: www.iccsafe.org/cs/IGCC
About LEED NC 3.0 June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop28 LEED = Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Developed by USGBC but administered by GBCI Published in April 2009 Reweighted credits to better align with environmental and human impacts of credits Introduced regional credits that emphasize local needs Retains four levels of certification Information on LEED 3.0: http://www.usgbc.org/DisplayPage.aspx?CMSPageID=1970 LEED NC 3.0 Reference Guide: http://www.usgbc.org/ShowFile.aspx?DocumentID=5546
Standard vs. Certification ASHRAE 189.1 LEED NC 3.0 June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop29 Throughout the project Mandatory provisions AND prescriptive OR performance path Low At granting of certification Pre-requisites AND a choice of credits that must total to desired level Moderate High Compliance validated... Flexibility... Potential for missing expectations Potential for recognition
Watch for Alignment June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop30 Sustainability standards and certification do not perfectly align with the Guiding Principles NC / MR What will you find – 1:1 match Similar end result Possible to arrive at the same end result... but not guaranteed (PNG) Not addressed (NA) LEED Certification equivalence is policy Good contract documents address compliance paths Addendum Crosswalk for ASHRAE 189,1 and LEED NC 3.0 illustrates this
ASHRAE 189.1 Alignment Issues Possible, Not Guaranteed Not Addressed June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop31 Energy efficiency 30% hot water from solar Harvest and reclaim water Reduce outdoor potable water by 50% Pre-development hydrology Daylight factor of 2%...

Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Design Standards for New Federal Buildings Notice of Proposed Rule Making Published on May 28, 2010 (75 FR 29933) Comments due on July 27, 2010 http://bit.ly/b5ReCI June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop33
Purpose of the Rule June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop34 Define 11 terms, including: Major renovation Potable water To the extent practicable Revise definitions of 3 terms, including New federal building Require solar hot water heaters Revise the Guiding Principles NC / MR Recommend a green building rating system
New Definitions Proposed June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop35 Major renovation Changes that yield substantial improvement in energy efficiency – OR – Cost more than 25% of Replacement Plant Value Potable water Public drinking water Natural freshwater To the extent practicable Wherever feasible taking into consideration... safety.... project objectives... material availability... increases in life cycle cost and total funding available Commentary: Not when compliance costs exceed 3% of first costs
Definition Revision Proposed June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop36 New federal building Any new building... constructed by, or for the use of, any Federal agency. Would include built new-to-lease Would include complete in-place replacements, from foundation to roof
Solar Hot Water Heaters June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop37
Proposed Revisions to GPs NC / MR June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop38 Would revise Reduce Environmental Impacts of Materials Restore the 10% concept for recycled content from the original (MOU) GPs Post consumer recycled content + half of pre- consumer recycled content 10% of first cost or replacement value of ALL building materials Remains a preference Would introduce Building Siting to consider: Building orientation Central locations Local transit Pedestrian access Affordable housing Reuse of buildings Avoiding sensitive lands Parking management
Green Building Rating Systems June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop39 Would effect designs initiated one year after final rule publish date The system must: Allow for independent verification of criteria Welcome public comment Use a consensus-based revision process Have national recognition Periodically evaluate its sustainability benefits Periodically confirm continued savings of certified buildings
Green Building Rating Systems June 17, 20102010 FIMS / RE Workshop40 Certification level Complies with regulations stemming from EPAct 2005 and EISA 2007 Complies with EO 13423 Self-certification FEMP has to approve Agencies would certify internal reviewers Judge buildings against the Guiding Principles NC / MR At least 5% of certified buildings annually done through a system compliant with the six criteria on the previous slide
