1. Location & Transportation

This topic is focus on the Sensitive Land Protection, High-Priority Site, Surrounding Density & Diverse Uses, Bicycle parking preparation, Parking Capacity, Parking Footprint & Eco-friendly Vehicles.

2. Sustainable Site (SS)

Utilization of sustainable site means having low impact to the site which including promoting green open space, protecting of flooding, Reducing urban heat islands effect, and reducing lighting pollution.

3. Water Efficiency (WE)

Water efficiency includes minimizing demanding on water supply in landscape, toilet flushing and urinal use, and reducing overall water consumption in the building.

4. Energy & Atmosphere (EA)

Energy and atmosphere includes reducing energy consumption, supporting the renewable energy, creating systematic measurement of energy consumption, using low refrigerant chemicals, purchasing of Electrical Energy from power plant that are certified for using renewable energy.

5. Materials & Resource (MR)

Construction materials and resources selection includes providing areas for recyclable waste management, reusing of existing building or building materials, managing construction waste reduction plan for example, using recycled materials, local materials, materials made from rapid growth plants, and woods from certified forestry (FSC)

6. Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)

To control Indoor Environmental Quality for maintaining comfort zone and user’s health. The main points is concerning with air-ventilation, managing air pollution during construction period and after building has operation, Low VOC chemicals selection, manually comfort zone control by building’s user, Natural lighting and designing for access outside’s view and creating fungi’s protection plan.

7. Innovation (IN)

The purpose of this LEED category is to recognize projects for innovative building with the new innovation features and sustainable building practices and strategies and there is LEED AP is the project team.

8. Regional Priority (RP)

Because some environmental issues are particular to a local, volunteers from USGBC chapters and the LEED International Roundtable has identified distinct environmental priorities within their areas and the credits that address those issues. These Regional Priority credits encourage project teams to focus on their local environmental priorities.
