1 An Introduction to LEED-CI: A LEED Green Building Rating System from the U.S. Green Building Council AIA Honolulu, LEED-CI GoldIntergen, LEED-CI CertifiedChong|Partners Architecture, LEED-CI Gold As of

2 LEED Green Building Rating System available LEED-NC (new construction) LEED-CI (commercial interiors) LEED-EB (existing buildings, operations and maintenance) under development LEED-CS (core & shell) LEED-H (homes) LEED-ND (neighborhood developments) As of

3 provide a voluntary standard for high performance green interior spaces measure and verify green project achievements promote integrated, sustainable design recognize leaders raise awareness intentions of the CI rating system transform the built environment! As of

4 when to use LEED-CI fit outs of interior spaces that dont include whole building or system upgrades tenant upgrades works with LEED-CS to establish green building criteria for developers and tenants Earthjustice, LEED-CI Silver As of

5 LEED-CI project types Corporate Offices NGO Offices Design Offices Government Offices Law Firms Medical Facilities Laboratory Libraries Banks University Buildings Historic Buildings Showrooms Arts Centers Theaters Hospitality Suites Retail Restaurants Spa As of

6 LEED-CI certified projects Certified Buildings Number of Buildings: 21 Floor Area of Buildings: 1,612,021 Ownership of Buildings Non-Profit: 4 Business: 17 As of

8 LEED-CI: levels of certification Certified21-26 points Silver points Gold points Platinum points LEED-CI: levels of certification Certified21-26 points Silver points Gold points Platinum points Points are awarded under LEED-CI when the requirements of a credit are satisfied. Total points awarded determines the level of certification. measuring achievement As of

9 LEED-CI point distribution + innovation in design process As of

10 sustainable sites goals develop only appropriate sites reuse existing buildings and/or sites protect natural and agricultural areas reduce need for automobiles protect and restore sites As of

11 water efficiency goals reduce the quantity of water needed for the building reduce municipal water supply and treatment burden As of

12 Establish energy efficiency and system performance Optimize energy efficiency Encourage renewable and alternative energy sources Supply ozone protection protocols energy and atmosphere goals As of

13 reduce the amount of materials needed use materials with less environmental impact reduce and manage waste materials and resources goals As of

14 establish good indoor air quality eliminate, reduce and manage the sources of indoor pollutants ensure thermal comfort and system controllability provide for occupant connection to the outdoor environment indoor environmental quality goals As of

15 Incorporating USGBCs LEED standards into University practices makes sense from all angles: financial, environmental, and human health. – David Beaudoin, CEM, Manager of Operations, Energy & Utilities, Harvard School of Public Health; LEED-CI Pilot Project Why Certify? triple bottom line benefits Build Green. Everyone Profits. As of

16 reduce the impacts of natural resource consumption buildings represent: –39% of U.S. primary energy use –70% of electricity consumption –40% of raw materials use globally –12% of potable water consumption environmental benefits As of

17 economic benefits increase building valuation and ROI optimize life-cycle economic performance qualify for state and local incentives reduce operating costs –according to U.S. EPA research, tenants can save about 50 cents per square foot each year through strategies that cut energy use by 30%. This can represent a savings of $50,000 or more in a five-year lease on 20,000 square feet As of

18 decrease vacancy, improve retention reduce liability high worker productivity –a study by Carnegie Mellon University measuring the relationship between increased lighting control and productivity showed an average increase of 7.1% in productivity occupant benefits As of

19 how to get started visit to learn more about LEED-CI, review a copy of the rating system, and check out the FAQwww.usgbc.org/LEED attend a LEED-CI Workshop get involved with your local chapter register your LEED-CI project online at contact us at As of
