LEED Reference Guide for Green Building Design and Construction: Healthcare Supplement with Global ACPs
The Global Alternative Compliance Path supplement is complimentary to the LEED 2009 Reference Guide for Green Building Design and Construction and Healthcare Supplement, the most comprehensive guide for the design, construction and major renovations of commercial and institutional buildings.
Alternative Compliance Paths (ACPs) to LEED credits provide additional options or approaches that address unique circumstances and accommodate advancements in science and technology. ACPs allow LEED to be more flexible and applicable to a wider range of projects. The LEED 2009 Building Design and Construction (BD&C) Global ACPs were developed for new construction and major renovations of commercial and institutional buildings, core and shell developments, schools, healthcare facilities, and retail projects. These Global ACPs can be applied at the discretion of the project team, based on applicability; they are not mandatory for any project. Some Global ACPs are available only for projects outside the U.S., and others are available for all LEED projects regardless of location, as indicated in the credit language.Navigate your LEED project from registration through certification.
