A brief description of the green building rating system(s) used and/or a list of certified buildings and ratings:

University of Missouri utilizes a campus-wide approach to sustainable construction thought the continued development and implementation of Sustainable Design Guidelines. The MU Sustainable Design Guidelines set standards for design and construction that at minimum meets the requirements of LEED Certified construction.


Floor area of newly constructed or renovated building space that is NOT certified, but that was designed and constructed in accordance with published green building guidelines and policies:
87,000 Square Feet

Do the green building guidelines or policies cover the following?:
Yes or No
Impacts on the surrounding site (e.g. guidelines to reuse previously developed land, protect environmentally sensitive areas, and otherwise minimize site impacts) Yes
Energy consumption (e.g. policies requiring a minimum level of energy efficiency for buildings and their systems) Yes
Building-level energy metering Yes
Use of environmentally preferable materials (e.g. guidelines to minimize the life cycle impacts associated with building materials) Yes
Indoor environmental quality (i.e. guidelines to protect the health and comfort of building occupants) Yes
Water consumption (e.g. requiring minimum standards of efficiency for indoor and outdoor water use) Yes
Building-level water metering Yes

A brief description of the green building guidelines or policies and/or a list or sample of buildings covered:

To further the Campus’ commitment to sustainable design, the University developed a campus-wide approach to sustainable building using LEED as a framework. MU held its first workshop to develop this approach to building facility sustainability in May of 2011. The resulting collection of strategies has become the content of the University’s Sustainable Design Guidelines (SDG). Campus Facilities continues to hold workshops with division directors semi-annually in order to review the effectiveness of current policies and update the SDG. The campus as a whole has one LEED certified buildings, and six projects in the process of certification.


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

The University reviews the effectiveness of the SDG and sustainability policies semi-annually. Prior to design and construction, Campus Facilities provides a sustainability packet to consultants and contractors. This packet includes a copy of the SDG, a LEED tracker including standards satisfying the SDG, as well as template specifications and logs to report compliance. Consultants and contractors report compliance with these standards during all major phases of design and construction. The campus also has a full-time manager for sustainable design and construction, whose responsibility is to monitor and advance green building practices.
