2011 | LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance Feasibility Assessment & Implementation Plan
The Colorado Governor's Energy Office (GEO) released a request for proposals to fund a feasibility analysis phase of the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance process on university campuses. The grant program sought to provide Colorado universities an opportunity to explore the barriers and opportunities of pursuing LEED for Existing Buildings: O&M for campus buildings at Colorado colleges and universities. Colorado State University's Facilities Management Department and Institute for the Built Environment (IBE) collaborated on the successful grant proposal. This report describes the feasibility study conducted by IBE with support from CSU Facilities Management. In general, our assessment found that while LEED for Existing Buildings: O&M is a certification program for individual buildings, many of the standards evaluated could be implemented university wide, thereby streamlining the certification process for each building pursuing certification at Colorado State University. Below is a list of current programs and/or practices that contribute to any CSU building pursuing LEED for Existing Buildings: O&M.
