IDc3 | Possible 1 point


To maximize opportunities for integrated, cost-effective adoption of green design and construction strategies, emphasizing human health as a fundamental evaluative criterion for building design, construction, and operational strategies. Utilize innovative approaches and techniques for green design and construction.


Assemble and involve a project team as described in ID Prerequisite 1: Integrated Project Management and Design.
Actively involve all team members referenced above in at least three of the following phases of project design and construction process:

  • Conceptual/schematic design
  • LEED planning
  • Preliminary design
  • Energy/envelope systems analysis or design
  • Design development
  • Final design and construction documents
  • Construction administration

Conduct regular meetings with the project team from the end of schematic design until the owner's certificate of occupancy to review project status, introduce new team members to project goals, discuss problems encountered, formulate solutions, review responsibilities and identify next steps. The meetings can be integrated into other required project team meetings. A plan shall be determined for regular integrated team coordination. At a minimum, 12 meetings shall be included with the integrated project team. In these meetings, utilize the framework established by the ANSI Market Transformation to Sustainability Guideline Standard March 2007 revision for distribution Whole System Integration Process (WSIP).
