LEED Certified Practices

    Sustainable Sites
SS Credit 1.0 - Site Selection
Avoid development of inappropriate sites and reduce the environmental impact from the location of a building on a site.
SS Credit 2.0 - Development Density & Community Connectivity
Channel development to urban areas with existing infrastructure, protect greenfields and preserve habitat and natural resources.
SS Credit 4.1 - Alt. Transportation: Public transportation access
Reduce pollution and land development impacts from automobile use.
SS Credit 5.1 - Protect and Restore Habitat
Conserve existing natural areas and restore damaged areas to provide habitat and promote biodiversity.
SS Credit 5.2 - Site Development: Maximize open space
Provide a high ratio of open space to development footprint to promote biodiversity.
SS Credit 6.1 - Storm Water Design
Limit disruption of natural water hydrology by reducing impervious cover, increasing on-site infiltration, reducing or eliminating pollution from stormwater runoff, and eliminating contaminants.
SS Credit 7.1 - Heat Island Effect (Non-Roof)
Reduce heat islands (thermal gradient differences between developed and undeveloped areas) to minimize impact on microclimate and human and wildlife habitat.
SS Credit 7.2 - Heat Island Effect (Roof)
Reduce heat islands (thermal gradient differences between developed and undeveloped areas) to minimize impact on microclimate and human and wildlife habitat.

Water efficiency
WE Credit 1.1 - Water Efficiency Landscaping
Limit or eliminate the use of potable water, or other natural surface or subsurface water resources available on or near the project site, for landscape irrigation.

Material Resources
MR Credit 1.1 - Building Reuse: Structure intact
Extend the life cycle of existing building stock, conserve resources, retain cultural resources, reduce waste and reduce environmental impacts of new buildings as they relate to materials manufacturing and transport.
MR Credit 3.1 - Material Reuse: Salvaged materials
Reuse building materials and products in order to reduce demand for virgin materials and to reduce waste, thereby reducing impacts associated with the extraction and processing of virgin resources.
MR Credit 4.1 - Recycled Content
Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.
MR Credit 6.0 - Rapidly Renewable Materials
Reduce the use and depletion of finite raw materials and long-cycle renewable materials by replacing them with rapidly renewable materials.
MR Credit 7.0 - Certified Wood
Encourage environmentally responsible forest management.
Indoor Environmental Quality
EQ Credit 8.1 - Daylight and Views
Provide for the building occupants a connection between indoor spaces and the outdoors through the introduction of daylight and views into the regularly occupied areas of the building.

Innovation & Design
ID Credit 1.0 - Zinc Alloy Siding
ID Credit 2.0 - Shared Tenant Greenhouse on Roof
ID Credit 3.0 - Green Roof Installation
