A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with green building design and construction guidelines and policies:

In laying out project plans, green building and/or LEED certification goals are used to guide project schematic designs. Consultants and contractors are referred to the Project Guide in project RFPs, these principles are carried on into project plans, design and into construction and project commissioning. Facilities projects staff also provide direction during the project design and construction to ensure environmental choices are considered.
