As of fiscal year ending 2008:
((= ALL BUILDINGS))
That means YOU !!
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.

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
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.
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
Total USGBC Costs= $ 7,600
recording of the various important meetings and decisions, DOE 2 software,
collection of various materials and meetings $ 40,000
Total added Cost for LEED $100,000
LESS THAN 1%
Provide minimum language in A/E contract identifying requirement for design, documentation, and submission for certification.
Include enhanced commissioning in the Construction Administration contract, and requirements for LEED oversight.
All parties must be engaged at the earliest definitions and scoping of the project.
Do not duplicate efforts for commissioning (i.e. within the MEP scope of services) nor the implementation of the LEED requirements.
A/E Contract Language (base services)
The Architect shall take all necessary measures and shall meet professional standards of care to provide design and other services for the project, including those elements necessary to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) Silver Certification, to file application documents to obtain LEED™ Silver Certification, and to take other measures necessary to obtain LEED™ Silver Certification. The silver level of certification is the minimum required. As identified and established with the Agency and the Owner, a higher level of certification may be achieved.

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.
Green Globes™ As of June 21st, 2008 Green Globes™ for Commercial New Construction tool has been fully integrated with the Green Building Initiative's main site.http://www.greenglobes.com/
