LEED Stories from Practice Article: Building Management
|Offered by||U.S. Green Building Council|
In this six-page article, read how three LEED projects exemplify the ways in which commissioning and measurement and verification (M&V) are transforming green building practices. Increasingly, project teams are working with building operators and facilities managers to identify discrepancies between early energy modeling efforts and actual data, and are using this data to seek innovative waysto improve performance. And, they are realizing that lessons learned from the commissioning and M&V of current projects can be usedto inform future projects.
The LEED projects featured in this article include: Chartwell School (LEED for New Construction) in Seaside, California; Liberty Centre (LEED for Existing Buildings) in Portland, Oregon; and the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University (LEED for New Construction) in Tempe, Arizona.
