LEED BD+C: Retail | v1 - LEED 1.0 pilot

Regional materials: 10% extracted, processed & manufactured regionally

Possible 1 point

Intent

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

Requirements

Use building materials or products that have been extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project site for a minimum of 10% (based on cost) of the total materials value. If only a fraction of a product or material is extracted/harvested/recovered and manufactured locally, then only that percentage (by weight) shall contribute to the regional value.

Mechanical, electrical and plumbing components and specialty items such as elevators and equipment shall not be included in this calculation. Only include materials permanently installed in the project. Furniture may be included, providing it is included consistently in MR Credits 3–7.

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.
