New construction at PCC strives to meet or exceed the US Green Building Council’s Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification Standards for Building Design and
Construction. This standard contains minimum requirements for all certification levels across
nine categories:
● location & transportation
● sustainable sites
● water efficiency
● energy & atmosphere
● materials & resource
● indoor environmental quality
● innovation
● regional priority
● integrative process
Based on the number of points achieved through planning, design, and construction, a project
may pursue certification at one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
PCC has initiated a tiered approach to LEED Certification based building on size:
1
● 0 - 5,000 SF - Not Certified
● 5,000 - 15,000 SF - Certified Level
● 15,000 - 40,000 SF - Silver Level
● Above 40,000 SF - Gold, Platinum Levels (case-by-case)
