6-4.2 Incorporate Sustainable Development principles by:
Site: demonstrate that site planning has evaluated solar and wind orientation and existing
site conditions to develop optimal building siting and appropriate low maintenance
Energy: demonstrate that building orientation and massing, natural ventilation, day-
lighting, and other passive strategies have been evaluated in an effort to increase the
quality of the indoor environment and comfort of the occupants. Demonstrate that the
system selection is the most efficient through the use of an advanced computer modeling
and life cycle cost analysis.
Building materials: evaluate the use of environmentally preferable materials that limit
impacts on the environment and occupant health within the parameters of performance,
cost, aesthetics and availability.
Indoor air quality: evaluate design strategies that limit sources of contamination before
they enter the building.
Water: evaluate the use of water conservation through the use of low flow fixtures,
appropriate landscaping and natural filtration of rainwater.
Recycling and conservation: accommodate recycling into the building design and limit
waste during construction by recycling construction waste.
