Construction Sika Egypt What is LEED ® ? Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System Certification programme (for buildings) LEED ensures that facilities are designed, constructed and operated effectively (focus on life cycle cost) Documents are assembled and submitted to US or Canadian Green Building Council (USGBC) for certification

Construction Sika Egypt LEED® International
Construction Sika Egypt United States Green Building Council Promotes construction of buildings that are: Environmentally responsible Profitable Healthy places to live and work
Construction Sika Egypt Why is LEED ® important? Estimates for Canada (2007) Percentage of owners that will certify their buildings: Educational 65% Government 62% Office 48% Healthcare 46% Residential32% Hospitality 22% Retail22%
Construction Sika Egypt LEED ® – Standards 2009 Standards available edition 2009: Green Building Design and Construction New Construction Core and Shell Schools Commercial interiors
Construction Sika Egypt LEED ® - Principals Idea for LEED certificatio n! Request for design according to LEED rules, define level! LEED design and documentation of project Requirement to contractors and demand for information Demand for information Provide information and declaration for products Provide documents Demand for project certification, provide documentation Certification for project (building) To be accredited for LEED
Construction Sika Egypt LEED ® – Levels 2009 Four levels of LEED 2009: Certified level40-49 points Silver level50-59 points Gold level60-79 Platinum level80+ ( possible) LEED-NC, v1.0--Level: Certified Energy Resource Center Chicago Center for Green Technology LEED-NC, v1.0--Level: Platinum

Construction Sika Egypt LEED ® - Points Majority of credit-points earned in five design/build credit- categories: Indoor Environmental Quality Material and Resources Energy and Atmosphere Water Efficiency Sustainable Sites
Construction Sika Egypt LEED and Sika Sika materials and systems can impact following LEED categories: Sustainable Site (SS) Energy and Atmosphere (EA) Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Sika can help to achieve LEED credits: Materials and Resources (MR)
Construction Sika Egypt Sika-relevant Credits Material and Resources Credit 4 Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Credit 4.1 Low-Emitting Materials – Adhesives and Sealants Credit 4.2 Low-Emitting Materials - Paints and Coatings Credit 4.3 Low-Emitting Materials – Flooring Systems Credit 5 Regional Materials (MR) Should be considered in case by case. 500 miles
Construction Sika Egypt Sika-relevant Credits for Flooring, Coating (example) Credit 4.2 Low-Emitting Materials, Paints and Coatings (IEQ) Clear wood finishes, floor coatings, stains, primers > SCAQMD rule 1113 Example floor coatings VOC < 100 g/l. Sikadur Sikafloor SikaGard All Cement Products
Construction Sika Egypt LEED - Credit for Sika Sarnafil Roofing (example) Credit 2 On-Site Renweable Energy (EA) Use on-site renewable energy systems to offset building energy costs. Calculate project performance by expressing to energy produced by the renewable systems as percentage of the buildings annual energy cost. Credit 6 Green Power (EA) Engage in at least a 2-year renewable energy contract to provide at least 35% of the buildings electricity from renewable sources. Example of Sika products: Sika offers roof waterproofing master membranes for lamination of photovoltaic cells.
Construction Sika Egypt LEED ® - Credit for Sika Sarnafil roofing (example) Credit 7.2 Heat Island Effect (SS) High reflecting Green roofs Install a vegetated roof that covers at least 50% of the roof area. Example of Sika products: e.g. Sikaplan 45, Sikaplan SGMA, Sarnafil G 476. Use roofing materials with solar reflectance index >78 for min. 75% of roof surface (low sloped roofs). Example, high reflecting roof waterproofing membrane, e.g. Sarnafil S 327 Energy Smart.
