green globes ratings and assessment tools
Green Globes™ Ratings and Assessment Tools
  • New Buildings or Significant Renovation
  • Management and Operation of Existing Buildings
  • Building Emergency Management Assessment BEMA
  • Fit Up

Buildings that have a predicted rating of 35% or more can pursue third-party assessment. Third-party assessment is required to publicize your building as a Green Globes rated/certified building.

One to four globes are possible and our recognition program includes a plaque and PR kit. Case study development is encouraged.

dpw bd c what is leed
DPW/BD&C What is LEED?
  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
    • In 1995 the USGBC (United States Green Building Council) with cooperation from the U.S. Dept. of Energy, developed the LEED rating system to define the term ‘green building’ and to stimulate energy conservation design.
    • Green Building Rating System that provides a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction
    • encompasses more than 14,000 projects in US and 30 countries covering 1.062 billion sq ft of development area.
    • the USGBC has stated support for the 2030 Challenge, an effort that has set a goal of using no fossil fuel green house gas emitting energy to operate by 2030.

Evaluate each targeted point or green element:

Studies suggest an initial up front investment of 2% extra will yield over ten times the initial investment over the life cycle of the building

  • COSTS:
  • Not all green elements are affordable for every project
  • Evaluate first costs
  • Long-term maintenance / replacement costs
  • Energy costs
  • Design and documentation costs
  • Documentation costs
  • Environmental benefits
  • Long term cost savings – energy, operations, replacement
  • Payback period
  • Credit and Recognition
  • “Good will” benefits – demonstrated commitment
  • Increased Productivity

Other costs associated with LEED:

DESIGN PROFESSIONAL Costs – This involves collecting of the pertinent information during the design process, plus minutes of milestone meetings and needed computations. This is true with both sections of the effort including submission information pertaining to points.

Design Phase Range dependent on the project ($20-40,000)

Construction Phase again dependent on the project ($20-60,000)

If a firm elects to hire a service to take on this duty the only cost we can identify that the design firm will then be responsible for will be the development of computations. Otherwise the fees should not be duplicated.


Other costs associated with LEED:

COMMISSIONING – The work is defined in our contract documents, this party will be involved in the entire design and Construction process, additionally they will participate in the Post Occupancy Evaluation of the performance of the project. The cost is directly related to the size and complexity of the project and added fees if the project is phased.

Design Phase Range dependent on the project ($20-40,000)

Construction Phase Range “ ($20-200,000)

POE usually a one time effort ($5-12,000)

CONSTRUCTION – Different levels create different costs

Certification (Bronze) Little if any increase

Silver usually 0 to 1.5%

Gold (dependent on the innovations used) 3-6% of Construction


Example of possible costs for a project:

  • Higher Ed Client - 80,000sf 4 story classroom building - $20,000,000 Construction cost
  • Application Fee $ 600
  • Certification for NC
  • Design Rev. 80k x .035 = $2,800 + 4 Challenges $2,000 $ 4,800
  • Const Rev. 80k x .015 = $1,200 + 2 challenges $1,000 $ 2,200

Total USGBC Costs= $ 7,600

  • A/E Costs Design Fee for Processing and design of LEED Issues including the

recording of the various important meetings and decisions, DOE 2 software,

collection of various materials and meetings $ 40,000

  • Construction fees for processing of LEED Issues $ 60,000

Total added Cost for LEED $100,000

  • Added Construction costs
  • Innovation cost of use of PV for water heating
  • PV costs of $100,000 CCEF rebate of $50,000 Added cost $ 50,000
  • All other costs for higher performance equipment off-set by
  • Efficiency in operation and smaller motors and Elec. needs. $ 0
  • Total Added cost for Construction $ 50,000
  • Grand total of project for sustainable design in range of $ 157,600

2. Design review:

Review the 50% and 90% design submittals provided by the design build contractor and provide written comments to DPW as a report. Each report will address site work …….. commissioning, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems. Each report will also address the design provisions for LEED construction and its effect on the operations of the facility.

5. Supervision and Inspection

d. The Construction Administrator shall monitor all tests, equipment/systems start-ups, LEED certification, systems commissioning and operating/maintenance training.
