LEED BD+C: Core and Shell | v3 - LEED 2009

Site development - protect or restore habitat

SSc5.1 | Possible 1 point

GBCI Reviewer Tip

Common issue: The compliant areas are not indicated in site and/or landscape plans, and often the site/landscape plans provided do not include planting details. Turf and playing fields are also incorrectly included. Note that turf and playing fields do not meet the requirements of native/adaptive and therefore do not contribute towards this credit, but may contribute towards SSc5.2.

Suggestions: Ensure that the plans provided clearly indicate the areas used towards credit compliance, and that the planting materials are indicated. Exclude turf and sod. Lawn is acceptable if it a) is not a monoculture, b) does not require regular maintenance or mowing, and c) does not include any non-native/adapted species.
