LEED for Existing Buildings: Reference Guide Now Available

 

The much anticipated LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Reference Guide is now available for purchase at the USGBC Store.

The LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Rating System provides a tool for building owners, managers and practitioners to maximize the operational efficiency of their buildings, while minimizing environmental impacts. The introduction contains information on recertification, performance period, exemplary performance, multi-tenant issues, and more. Visit the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Web page for a free download of the introduction.

This reference guide provides a section overview for each credit category, the number of points per credit, summaries of referenced standards, recommended operational strategies and technologies, potential design synergies and trade-offs, submittal documentation lists, calculation methods and formulas, environmental and economic issues, resources, definitions, and case studies.

In January 2009, LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance will be aligned with the other long-standing LEED rating systems. USGBC will publish a new version of the reference guide that will incorporate the version 2009 point and percentage scales.

The LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Reference Guide is priced at $150 for USGBC national members or $200 for non-members.
