| v1 - LEED 1.0 pilot

Regional materials, 10% extracted and manufactured regionally

MRc5.2 | Possible 1 point

Intent

Increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured within the region, thereby supporting the regional economy and reducing the environmental impacts resulting from transportation.

Requirements

In addition to the requirements of MR 5.1, use a minimum of 10% of the combined value of construction and Division 12 (Furniture) materials and products extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project.

Furniture is defined as either retail display/shelving that is purchased as a unit from a manufacturer (regardless of where the assembly takes place) or as modular/freestanding furniture.

Please note that casework and built-in millwork items must be included in the base building calculations.
