LEED CERT ON PUBLIC PARK / FIELD HOUSE

LEED CERT ON PUBLIC PARK / FIELD HOUSE

August 20, 2013

Hi i am doing a feasibility report on LEED certifying a couple field houses owned by public parks. The problem I am facing is that there is no sub metering so all utilities account for the whole park. The electricity provides outdoor lighting etc. I found that on port manager i can account for this by using the park as a campus and having the gas utility data go though only the field house. But will I have to apply for LEED as a campus as well?

Thanks You

EPDs and HPDs

July 25, 2013

With the new Materials and Resources credits in LEED v4, Environmental Product Declarations and Health Product Declarations seem to be the way of the future for product documentation. However, when I search for them, I only seem to find envirodec.com and UL.com for the EPDs, and the Pharos HPD toolbox for the HPDs. Is this right? Are there databases where these are housed that I am not aware of? Or is there really very few EPDs and HPDs in existence today?

Cost of LEED and Influencing the Selection of Credits

July 19, 2013

Hi all - I hope I am posting this in the right place. Sorry I am pretty new to this site but my experience here has been awesome so far.

I work with a Construction Management firm and I am trying to raise awareness of how different LEED credits have different impacts on project execution/cost. My objective is that our team can have a more meaningful discussion with the design team and provide more constructive feedback during project development (and not just sit back and "blindly" accept the decisions).

I am wondering if there is any credit by credit cost analysis out there that I could review? Anything that would help us understand some of the hard/softcosts associated with LEED. I've already downloaded the resources in "the cost of LEED" section of this site. They are great resources and I wonder if there is similar content out there?

Thanks a million and great site,
Philip Murphy

Owner's LEED Projects Database- does anyone have it?

June 21, 2013

Are you an owner or owner's repsentative and do you have a database of LEED documentation for your projects?
I work in higher-education and we have a goold to build at the LEED Silver or higher level. Now that we have built a few buildings, we are being asked to report on their accomplishments and strategize for how to best leverage the system to achieve specific strategic goals.
Unfortunately, all of the data within LEED documentation is resident in PDF files, which are hard to analyze and summarize. Has anyone developed a base reporting document for multiple LEED projects? USGBC and GBCI obviously use the data they receive to report on credit utilization, etc. But is there a schema or data structure for tracking some basic and important (quantitative) documentation requirements, such as referenced ASTM standard, base case energy, projected energy, GSF, occupancy, water savings, construction waste diversion, etc.?
How do corporate owners of a LEED portfolio track their goals/projected use against actual as a way to transition from a "project" mentality to an operations/ asset monitoring approach?

Contractor refusing to submit LEED documentation with submittals

Contractor refusing to submit LEED documentation with submittals

June 14, 2013

I have an issue that is on the cusp of turning into a nasty situation. For some reason (probably to set up a claim for extra $) the contractor on one of my projects is refusing to submit LEED documention concurrent with the other data required in the product submittals. Thus far I've been Approving as Noted submittals that I could check on myself and have been adding a 'friendly reminder' with the submittals that we need to see this information. However, I'm hesistant to approve interior submittals that will impact multiple points if a non-compliant product is installed.
Our specifications clearly state that the contractor has to submit LEED documentation as indicated with each product AND in the closeout submittal. the contractor is insisting that the specifications only require them to produce a closeout submittal.
This is ridiculous-how on earth are we supposed to insure that the proper products are being installed or that we are meeting our goals if you aren't reviewing LEED requirements at the same time as the rest of the product data? I can't even believe they are fighting us on this...we aren't asking for something special-this is the way every single construction project I've done CA on has operated. Also, we have had a couple of LEED certification failures because of this very issue-looking for LEED credits at the end of the project doesn't work.
Complicating this situation further is that there is an entity between the design team and the contractor that doesn't really understand LEED at all and has outright refused to back us up in defending the specifications.
Tell me-am I being unreasonable? Maybe my understanding of the process is different than the industry standard. Somebody help me out!
