Abstract : All Federal agencies are mandated to apply sustainable design principles to the siting, design, and construction of their facilities. Agencies are further required to certify the sustainability of 5% of the buildings constructed each year with an independent, third-party authority. The US Army's certifier is the US Green Building Council (USGBC) using the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design s (LEED) rating system. In Fiscal Year 2011, the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management (OACSIM) requested that the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL) prepare profiles of all USGBC certified Army projects adhering to USGBC presentation format. The profiles highlight project ratings for the Army s highest-priority LEED credits Energy Optimization (EA Cr1), Water Use Reduction (WE Cr3), and Construction Waster Management (MR Cr2); cite the total points and score by LEED major credit area; provide a narrative summary of the project; list the participants; and provide general cost and scope data.
