The design team is expected to follow the LEED process and use the LEED rating system as a project guide, regardless of the actual requirements set by the University for specific projects (At the start of the project, the University will determine whether a project will be certified under one of the LEED programs and which level is to be achieved). For all projects, the design team is required to organize the design and coordination efforts to follow the intent of an integrated and collaborative design process. The design process shall be integrated to develop and review design alternatives, perform first cost analyses, gain resolution on the project approach, determine the evaluation criteria, and to develop programmatic and sustainable design goals.
