LEED Showcase: LEED v4 & Living Buildings

The 13th Annual LEED Showcase will examine projects that have taken the plunge and decided to pursue either LEED Version 4 or Living Building Challenge Certification.

JPLC 2The Jan Phillips Learning Center at The College School is one of a handful of projects in the nation that is pursuing the Living Building Challenge. The learning center will boast net-zero energy use, net-zero water use, solar arrays, composting toilets, locally sourced materials, natural ventilation, and zero use of “Red List” chemicals in building materials.

Maplewood Massing_3.skpThe Maplewood Fire Station is one of the first projects in the Chapter’s territory pursing LEED v4 which, starting in October of this year, will be the only available LEED rating system available for registration. The new station will replace the existing fifty-year-old station, and provide a new home for Maplewood’s fire fighters.

HOK-St.-Louis-StairwayHOK’s St. Louis office is aiming to become the city’s first LEED v4 Commercial Interiors (CI) certification. The vintage building housing their new office space has been transformed using a variety of sustainable design strategies. Features include daylight harvesting, energy-efficient lighting, open office layout, bike storage, use of local, recycled, renewable and low-emitting interior materials, and more.

We will hear about their motivations to use these rating systems, design and construction features helping them to achieve these certifications, and any hurdles that they have had to overcome.
