USING LEED™ FOR MUNICIPAL INFRASTRUCTURE – REALITY VS. HYPE
Abstract:Many municipalities, private agencies, and federal agencies are adopting goals to require that all new construction shall seek Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) certification. However, this certification was developed by architects to promote highperformance buildings and it is poorly adapted to municipal infrastructure such as water and wastewater treatment facilities. This paper discusses the opportunities for appropriate use of LEED™ for municipal infrastructure projects.
