Green Building: Commercial High Performance Guidelines


In this module the guidelines presented by this program outline strategies and techniques that provide a range of "best practices" for planning, designing, constructing and operating healthier, more energy efficient and resource efficient commercial facilities. Such high performance buildings can produce long-term life cycle savings for the Owners, and may also help stimulate the markets for environmentally efficient technologies. This is also true of government and municipal projects. By integrating high performance features into its capital projects, cities and municipalities can add value to the capital assets while helping to protect the environment and support local economic activity. The High Performance Building Guidelines help each participant better understand their role in producing improved, more efficient buildings with reduced environmental impacts.

These Guidelines provide guidance about best practices that must be adopted in order to realize environmental and efficiency goals and achieve the higher degree of collaboration necessary to reach the targeted performance objectives.
