The green building guidelines or policies:

The State of WI Department of Administration produces a Sustainable Facilities Design Standards (https://doa.wi.gov/Pages/DoingBusiness/Sustainability.aspx, currently being updated) that UW-Madison can adopt for use in their construction projects. While components from this manual are often included in UW-Madison construction projects, this is not a formal requirement and UW-Madison does not mandate compliance with these nor do did it maintain a mandated green building standard in FY18.


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) ---
Energy consumption (e.g. policies requiring a minimum level of energy efficiency for buildings and their systems) ---
Building-level energy metering ---
Use of environmentally preferable materials (e.g. guidelines to minimize the life cycle impacts associated with building materials) ---
Indoor environmental quality (i.e. guidelines to protect the health and comfort of building occupants) ---
Water consumption (e.g. requiring minimum standards of efficiency for indoor and outdoor water use) ---
Building-level water metering ---
