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

The Design Criteria/Facilities Standards (DCFS) are University standards
and design guidelines for new construction and building renovations on
the College Park campus. The DCFS set the requirements used by the
design team to meet the programmatic needs of each project and cover
topics including operations and maintenance, safety, energy efficiency,
and material finishes. To insure the University’s projects are designed
in compliance with the University’s green building commitment and the
High Performance Buildings Act, the DCFS was revised to address
environmental stewardship and LEED design criteria.
