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

Design Standards– The university’s Design Standards outline practices for new construction, renovation, renewal, and maintenance projects. These standards ensure that all projects are designed and built to green building standards with respect to site impacts, energy performance, environmentally preferable materials, indoor environmental quality and water consumption. Refinements to the procurement and project delivery processes have also improved the resulting performance of new buildings. A number of recently completed buildings are pursuing LEED certification including the Taylor Family Digital Library (TFDL), Yamnuska Hall and the High Density Library (HDL). See Section 4.1.2 Building Energy for more information.

The names of all buildings that are certified under the LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations, LEED for Commercial Interiors, and/or LEED for Core and Shell Green Building Rating Systems:
