LEED BD+C: Schools | v2 - Schools 2007

Materials reuse

MRc3 | Possible 2 points

Intent

Requirements

Use salvaged, refurbished or reused materials such that the sum of these materials constitutes at least:

  • 5%, (1 point)
  • 10% (2 points)

based on cost, of the total value of materials on the project.

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.
