Data source(s) and notes about the submission:
The GSF provided in this credit only takes into consideration buildings that are LEED certified based on LEED certification criteria. All LEED projects must be constructed and operated on a permanent location on existing land. No project that is designed to move at any point in its lifetime may pursue LEED certification. LEED Certification also does not allow for certification of temporary buildings per the minimum program requirements. The campus does include in its site boundary temporary buildings.
