LEED-New Construction Project Management
By Vijaya Yellamraju
This book explains how to integrate LEED-New Construction (NC) rating system requirements into the building design and construction processes. It provides LEED project managers with tools to implement a LEED project more efficiently and effectively, and also elaborates on roles and responsibilities of team members. It especially aids first-time LEED users in understanding the specifics of the process, saving time that they may have to spend creating their own project management systems. In addition, building owners, developers, and managers will find the book to be a valuable resource in understanding what it takes to get a building LEED-certified. Three in-depth case studies covering new commercial building construction, major renovations, and a portfolio of buildings highlight the strategies presented in the book. Practical tools that can be directly applied to the project for implementation are included throughout, as are illustrations, spreadsheets, diagrams, tables, charts, and examples. Project managers using other rating systems may be able to leverage information as applicable to their projects.
