Colorado State University LEED EB:O&M Feasibility Study

CO Governor

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: Operations & Maintenance (EB:O&M) for campus buildings at Colorado colleges and universities.

IBE Role

Colorado State University's Facilities Management Department and Institute for the Built Environment (IBE) collaborated on this grant. IBE began the project by meeting with key stakeholders in the CSU Facilities department, conducting preliminary analysis of campus buildings, and identified opportunities and barriers for LEED EB:O&M implementation. Following the interviews, site visits, and analysis, IBE developed the roadmap for LEED EB:O&M certification for CSU.
