Description:
The purpose of this Category is to Waymark Buildings with one of four levels (e.g. Bronze/Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum) of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design(LEED) Certification.

Expanded Description:

In 1994, Senior Scientist of the Natural Resource Defense Counsel, Robert Watson, undertook to develop a set of Standards  which would, "encourage and accelerate global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices".   From his efforts, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Standards were born.  Professionals in the building industry were quick to embrace the concept, and today:

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), provides a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction. Since its inception in 1998, LEED has grown to encompass more than 14,000 projects in 50 US States and 30 countries covering 1.062 billion square feet (99 km²) of development area. The hallmark of LEED is that it is an open and transparent process where the technical criteria proposed by the LEED committees are publicly reviewed for approval by the more than 10,000 membership organizations that currently constitute the USGBC.


Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification:

There are seven categories which are evaluated in obtaining a LEED Certification:

 

Innovation and Design

 

Includes special design methods and unique regional credits and exemplary performance levels.
 

Location and Linkages

 

The placement of homes in socially environmentally responsible ways in relations to the larger community.
 

Sustainable Sites

 

The use of the entire property to minimize the projects impact on the site.
 

Water Efficiency

 

Water-efficient practices, both indoor and outdoor.
 

Energy & Atmosphere

 

Energy efficient, particularly in the building envelope and heating and cooling design.
 

Materials & Resources

 

Selection of environmentally preferable materials and minimization of waste during construction.
 

Indoor Environmental Quality

 

Improvement of indoor air quality by reducing the creation and exposure to pollutants.
 

Awareness & Education

 

The education of homeowner, tenant and/or building manager about the operation and maintenance of a LEED home.


The LEED  scoring system is  based on a set of required "prerequisites" and a variety of "credits" in the seven major categories listed above. In LEED v2.2 for new construction and major renovations for commercial buildings there are 69 possible points and buildings can qualify for four levels of certification:

  • Bronze (Certified) - 26-32 points
  • Silver - 33-38 points
  • Gold - 39-51 points
  • Platinum - 52-69 points

Although there are additional levels of Certification in the LEED process, we are only interested in the four Levels stated above.

 


Resources

Although many Corporations, Organizations, Schools and Communities usually advertise their LEED Certification on their website proudly, the easiest way to find a LEED Certified Building in your area is to use the Search Tool on the USGBC website:
