5What is LEED®? Energy and Environmental Design Leadership inEnergy andEnvironmentalDesignGreen Building Rating SystemCertification programme (for buildings)LEED ensures that facilities aredesigned,constructed andoperated effectively (focus on life cycle cost)Documents are assembled and submitted to US or Canadian Green Building Council (USGBC) for certificationLEED is an abbreviation for:Leadership inEnergy andEnvironmentalDesign
8United States Green Building Council Promotes construction of buildings that are:Environmentally responsibleProfitableHealthy places to live and workThe US Green Building Council is a non-profit organization.This programm is supported by the US government and is in line with the activities for „Rebuild America“.Buildings have to be certified according to the Leed rules.In Canada, the criteria are for 95 % identical to US.The policy is focused on:Environmental responsibilityProfitablilityHealthy places to live and work
9Why is LEED® important? Estimates for Canada (2007) Percentage of owners that will certify their buildings:Educational 65%Government 62%Office 48%Healthcare 46%Residential 32%Hospitality %Retail 22%An increasing number of owners, operators, architects and engineers design and plan for Green Building.This trend is accentuated by government incentives.Increasing number of owners, operators, architects andengineers design and plan for Green Building.This trend is accentuated by government incentives.

Keep in mind that for public buildings the request is given by the authorities.2 The building owner should give the order to the architects and engineers to develop the project according to the LEED rules and levels.3 The planner team will establish the specifications.4. The contractors are in charge to provide all information regarding material and application rules.5. Contractors will request detailed information concerning materials from the suppliers and manufacturers.6. The suppliers have to provide information and declaration for the relevant materials.7 The contractor provides all requested documents for the planner team.8. The planner team should work out a documentation and submit the dossier to the Green Building Council.9. After checking the documentation, the certificate for the building will be issued and published (by the Green Building Council).Provide informationand declaration forproductsRequirement tocontractors anddemand for information453Demand for information
12LEED® – Levels 2009 Four levels of LEED 2009: Certified level pointsSilver level pointsGold level 60-79Platinum level 80+ ( possible)LEED-NC, v1.0--Level: CertifiedLEED-NC, v1.0--Level: PlatinumEnergy Resource CenterThere are four levels of LEED building certifications.-Basic certification is at the LEED Certified level,a minimum of 26 points.-Platinum certification incorporates the most “green” building and designfeatures at a minimum of 52 points.-Up to four innovation credits are available for a project that demonstratesexcellence by achieving higher levels of efficiency in existing categories or byidentifying a new category that improves the LEED intent.Chicago Center for Green Technology

15Indoor Environmental Quality Material and Resources LEED® - PointsMajority of credit-points earned in five design/build credit- categories:Indoor Environmental QualitySustainableSitesMaterial and Resources-The five environmental categories are further divided into “credits.”For each credit, the rating system identifies the intent, requirements and technologies or strategies to achieve the credit.One or more points are available within each credit, and points are achieved by meeting specified requirements.Most categories contain prerequisites.ALL seven prerequisites MUST be met in order to qualify for ANY certification level.In addition to the five environmental categories, there is also an “Innovation and Design Process” category.69 points total:Sustainable Sites: 8 credits, 14 pointsWater Efficiency: 3 credits, 5 pointsEnergy and Atmosphere: 6 credits, 17 pointsMaterials and Resources: 7 credits, 13 pointsIndoor Environmental Quality: 8 credits, 15 pointsInnovation: 4 pointsLEED Accredited Professional: 1 pointWaterEfficiencyEnergy andAtmosphere
