LEED

Reclamation

The LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ is a voluntary, consensus-based standard to support and certify successful green building design, construction and operations.

LEED is transforming the marketplace by providing a nationally recognized certification system to promote integrated, whole-building design practices in the building industry. The system is based on achieving a certain amount of point, which are allocated for deign choices defined with the standard. Flooring products and installation materials can contribute to earning points in two of the five LEED categories. The experts at Allstate Floors of DC will help you to find the right flooring products and services that will help give your building the LEED score you are looking for.

LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings' performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

Architects, real estate professionals, facility managers, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, construction managers, lenders and government officials all use LEED to help transform the built environment to sustainability. State and local governments across the country are adopting LEED for public-owned and public-funded buildings; there are LEED initiatives in federal agencies, including the Departments of Defense, Agriculture, Energy, and State; and LEED projects are in progress in 41 different countries, including Canada, Brazil, Mexico and India.

Green Buildings 101

Sustainability

Everyone knows that “green building” is not about the color of the paint, but no single definition exists to define exactly what makes a building green. Rather, there are multiple elements to consider, and ongoing debate about which should be given the most weight.

There are, however, common themes to almost all definitions of green buildings, all of which relate to the building’s ability to provide a comfortable and productive space, while minimizing environmental impact throughout the entire life cycle. In general, buildings that aspire to be green strive to get the most out of every unit of energy, water, and other resources - saving money on energy, reducing environmental impacts, and raising value and competitiveness. Third party green building rating systems vary, but most tend to focus on five basic areas of concern, as depicted in the diagram to the right:

Site Planning

Much of a building’s environmental impact can be determined before holes are dug and concrete is poured. Thinking sustainably begins long before the first shovel breaks ground, and starts with the choice of site selection and preliminary design.

Choosing to construct on a “brownfield” site (previously developed site contaminated by a hazardous substance or pollutant) in a dense urban area is one example of sustainable site planning. While choosing such a site for a project can present environmental challenges--dealing with debris and possible contamination, for example, it also has numerous environmental benefits. Choosing a brownfield site can mean that an alternate undeveloped area remains natural, minimizing urban footprint. In addition, brownfield sites are typically found in densely populated urban communities, where a construction project has the dual benefit of invigorating the local economy and encouraging occupants to walk, bike, and take public transportation where available.

Water Management

The availability of fresh water has become an area of mounting concern as both developed and developing economies experience scarcity and increased competition for finite resources. Green building design should incorporate efficient water use. Managing wastewater, irrigation water, and storm runoff are also important to a sustainable approach.

In some buildings, rain is harvested, processed and reutilized for non-potable applications. Solutions of this nature can reduce the requirements for fresh water from municipal systems while at the same time avoiding the spread of pollutants through storm water runoff. Green roofs represent another emerging tool to prevent storm water runoff while adding to urban green space and providing a host of other benefits.

Energy

The environmental impacts of fossil fuel extraction and the threat of climate change make energy use a critical sustainability issue. Buildings use energy through direct combustion of gas or fuel oil, as well as the consumption of electricity, which is supplied primarily throughout the world via the burning of fossil fuels. But even as buildings require more and more energy to power computers, servers, and other equipment, designers are making strides to counter such demands by embedding efficiency deep within projects. Orienting the building to minimize solar radiation, including high grade windows and insulation and incorporating daylight into the design are just a few of the many ways to design an energy efficient building. Additionally, the appropriate selection of HVAC equipment and building systems controls are critical to the efficiency of any building.

Material Use

Building construction will always require natural resources. But green building design can minimize impact by selecting salvaged materials, renewable materials, recycled materials, or materials sourced close to the site to reduce the impacts of the building over the course of its life. Diverting construction waste from landfills to recycling applications is an important element of sustainable management of materials.

Indoor Environmental Quality

Sustainability includes consideration for the short- and long-term health of occupants. For this reason, green building design typically incorporates measures to improve the air quality inside the building by selecting materials that do not release hazardous chemicals or compounds and providing adequate ventilation, temperature, humidity and lighting. Healthy indoor environments are being viewed increasingly as key not only to the health of occupants, but to their satisfaction and productivity, as well.
