Floor area of newly constructed or renovated building space certified Living under the Living Building Challenge:
Floor area of newly constructed or renovated building space certified at each level under a rating system for design and construction used by an Established Green Building Council (GBC) :
|Certified Floor Area|
|LEED BD+C Platinum or at the highest achievable level under another rating system||71200 Square Feet|
|LEED BD+C Gold or at the 2nd highest level under another 4- or 5-tier GBC rating system||0 Square Feet|

|LEED BD+C Silver or at a step above minimum level under another 4- or 5-tier GBC rating system||0 Square Feet|
|LEED BD+C Certified or certified at minimum level under another GBC rating system||0 Square Feet|
Floor area of newly constructed or renovated building space certified under a non-GBC rating system for design and construction (e.g. Green Globes NC, Certified Passive House):
Percentage of newly constructed or renovated building space certified under a green building rating system for design and construction:
A brief description of the green building rating system(s) used and/or a list of certified buildings and ratings:
LEED Equivalent-build based on the LEED framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
Cal State East Bay also follows building management systems ALC and Alerton.
Floor area of newly constructed or renovated building space that is NOT certified, but that was designed and constructed in accordance with published green building guidelines and policies:
A copy of the green building guidelines or policies :
The green building guidelines or policies:
54,548 Recreation and Wellness - Not certified but designed to green building guideline
Do the green building guidelines or policies cover the following?:
|Yes or No|
|Impacts on the surrounding site (e.g. guidelines to reuse previously developed land, protect environmentally sensitive areas, and otherwise minimize site impacts)||Yes|
|Energy consumption (e.g. policies requiring a minimum level of energy efficiency for buildings and their systems)||Yes|
|Building-level energy metering||Yes|
|Use of environmentally preferable materials (e.g. guidelines to minimize the life cycle impacts associated with building materials)||Yes|
|Indoor environmental quality (i.e. guidelines to protect the health and comfort of building occupants)||Yes|
|Water consumption (e.g. requiring minimum standards of efficiency for indoor and outdoor water use)||Yes|
|Building-level water metering||Yes|
A brief description of the green building guidelines or policies and/or a list or sample of buildings covered:
The goal for the existing Cal State East Bay buildings is to achieve 30% energy savings over current consumption rates by 2030. This will require an ongoing program of retrofits and retro-commissioning of approximately 80% of the existing buildings. Achieving this goal translates into an estimated 6,400 MWh electric savings and 300 kTherms gas savings annually at full build-out
A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with green building design and construction guidelines and policies:
All future CSU new construction, remodeling, renovation, and repair projects will be designed with consideration of optimum energy utilization, low life cycle operating costs, compliance with all applicable energy codes (enhanced Title 24 energy codes) and regulations. In the areas of specialized construction that are not regulated through the current energy codes, such as historical buildings, museums, and auditoriums, the CSU will ensure that these facilities are designed to consider energy efficiency. Energy efficient and sustainable design features in the project plans and specifications will be considered in balance with the academic program needs of the project within the available project budget.
Capital Planning, Design and Construction in the Chancellor’s Office shall monitor building sustainability/energy performance and maintain information on design best practices to support the energy efficiency goals and guidelines of this policy. The sustainability performance shall be based on Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles with consideration to the physical diversity and microclimates within the CSU.
The CSU shall design and build all new buildings and major renovations to meet or exceed the minimum requirements equivalent to LEED “Silver.” Each campus shall strive to achieve a higher standard equivalent to LEED “Gold” or “Platinum” within project budget constraints. Each campus may pursue external certification through the LEED process.

Additional documentation to support the submission:
LEED Platinum - BD+C Student Faculty Services Building
Student Faculty (SF) building is cleaned with "green certified" products to meet qualification standards. Remaining campus uses peroxide based products and will eventually start using same "green certified" products used in SF building
