A brief description of the green building rating system(s) used and/or a list of certified buildings and ratings:

The LEED standard is our preferred green building rating system. Currently our new constructions have been built to LEED Silver standards, but have not been officially certified.

"Construction Waste & Recycling Plan
Please find the following Construction Waste and Recycling Plan as required by specification section 011510.

A. Contractor Name and Project Identification:
a.Garmong Construction Services
b.ISU Arena Locker Room Renovations, 401 N. 4th Street, Terre Haute, IN 47809

B.Procedures to be Used
a.The following materials will be separated and handled in the following manner:

i.Ferrous Metals
1.All ferrous metals such as metal stud framing, ductwork, electrical equipment, etc. will be separated and taken to Mervis Industries. Due to the anticipated minimal amount of this type of material, we will pile materials and load into a truck for delivery to the recycling center. At time of delivery, the load will be weighed and tickets will be documented.

ii.Non-Ferrous Metals
1.All non-ferrous metals such as copper and aluminum will be separated and taken to Goodman & Wolfe. Due to the anticipated minimal amount of this type of material, we will pile materials and load into a truck for delivery to the recycling center. At time of delivery, the load will be weighed and tickets will be documented.

iii.Untreated Lumber, Plywood, OSB, Particle Board, and Drywall
1.Due to limited amounts, if any, these types of materials will be placed in a dumpster for transport to C&D landfill.
iv.Cardboard, Paper & Beverage Containers
1.These materials will be separated and stockpiled on the jobsite and taken to ISU Recycling Center for processing. Estimated weight of materials will be documented.

v.Plumbing Fixtures, Doors, Electrical fixtures
1.All plumbing fixtures will be taken to Habitat for Humanity. Estimated weight of materials will be documented.

vi.Concrete and Masonry Materials
1.All material of this type appears to be contaminated due to the presence of paint. As a result, all of this material must be taken to a state permitted solid waste C&D landfill per IDEM Guidance Sheet 329 IAC 10-2-37. Given this IDEM requirement, this contaminated material is not eligible for recycling and therefore cannot be taken into account in the landfill diversion requirements as called for in the project specifications 011510. All concrete and masonry materials will be separated and put into a specific dumpster and taken to C&D landfill. . At time of delivery, the load will be weighed and tickets will be documented.

b.Estimated Quantity of Materials:

i.Unknown at this time
c.Name and Location of Reuse and Recycling Facilities/Sites:

i.Habitat for Humanity: 19th & Wabash, Terre Haute, IN
ii.Mervis Industries: 13th & College, Terre Haute, IN
iii.ISU Recycling Center: North 9th Street, Terre Haute, IN

d.Reuse, Recycling, and Disposal Reporting

i.Specification section 011510 mentions forms to be used in the documentation of this process. The referenced sections are 01151A & 01151B however no such forms are included. If specific forms are required please provide. If no specific form is received, we will develop our own.         

University Hall, Blumberg Hall, and Erickson Hall were all renovated to LEED standards but not certified. They are maintained with sustainable operations and maintenance.

Normal Hall and the Arena academic building are each pending LEED certification.


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 how the institution ensures compliance with green building design and construction guidelines and policies:

The LEED building design and construction standards are built into Indiana State University's Design Standards and Tenets of our Master Plan

D. LEED: Project is designed to comply with a Silver Certification Level according to the
U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)
Rating System, as specified in Division 1 Section “LEED Requirements.”
1. LEED provides a framework for meeting sustainability goals and recognizes
achievements in “green building” through a system of project certification.
2. LEED strategies are generally categorized into the areas of sustainable site development,
water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental
quality.
3. Indiana State University’s goal is for this Project is to achieve the highest LEED
certification possible with a minimum of a silver certification. Toward this end,
many LEED requirements are specified in Sections 1 through 16 of the specifications.
4. In order for all parties involved with the Project to work toward the highest LEED
certification possible, the cooperation of the Contractor is sought in exercising
reasonable judgment for the attainment of maximum sustainability. That is, when
a sustainable act is as economical and as timely to perform as a non-sustainable
act, and both acts will have the same result, the Contractor’s cooperation is requested
in performing the sustainable act.
5. Some LEED requirements are the responsibility of the University or others and,
when this is the case, such requirements will be so identified.
