LEED Chapter 1

Green Buildings reduce?
Design structures that reduce the overall negative impact on human health and the natural environment.
Green Buildings reduce negative impacts by:
1)Efficiently using energy, water, land, and materials2)Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity3)Reducing water and pollution from each green building
Old Way of Building focuses on:
On separate areas of expertise and interacting ONLY when absolutely necessary
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach differs some the “Old Way” by
By integrating people, systems, business structures, and practices into a process.
Positive Impacts of IPD (4)
1.

It optimizes project results;2. Increases value to owner;3. Reduces Waste;4.

Define Life Cycle Cost (LCC)
Sum of all recurring and on-time costs over the full life span or a specified period of a good, service, structure, or system.Evaluates ‘economic performance’.
Define Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)
Evaluates ‘environmental impact’.AKA – Ecobalance
Define Soft Costs
Costs not directly related to building, construction, etc. Can be architectural, legal, financing, engineering fees, etc. incurred before or after construction.

Define Hard Costs
Costs that deal with fixed assets (actual construction costs)

Define Value Engineering
Organized methodology that identifies and selects the lowest LCC options in design, materials, and processes that achieve the desired level of performance, reliability, and customer satisfaction.

Define Zoning
Method of land use regulation used by the local government in most developed countries. Zoning may be used-based (regulating the uses), or it may regulate building height, lot coverage, etc.
