Evaluation of LEED Certification Program for Buildings

A Case Study

Investigator: Michael Chimack, MIE

Prime Grant Support: National Center for Energy Management and Building Technology

Problem Statement and Motivation

  • The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System® is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings

  • Very little empirical data exists that demonstrate the short- and long-term benefits of constructing a LEED building

Current LEED Projects Worldwide

Technical Approach

Key Achievements and Future Goals

  • Select two identical or nearly identical buildings, one LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rated and one non-LEED rated, to monitor the following variables for a period of one year:

    • Temperature, Humidity, Carbon Dioxide concentration, Lighting levels and Power consumption of all pertinent heating, ventilating and air conditioning subsystems

  • Use building simulation software to normalize data for differences in building orientation, occupancy, equipment scheduling, etc.

  • Two City of Chicago buildings have been selected for the case studies

  • Preliminary building equipment assessments are complete

  • Monitoring equipment has been ordered. Monitoring of buildings should commence in August 2006.
