Credit 5: Indoor Chemical &
Pollutant Source Control
Air handling units process both return and supply air for maximum filtration. The air inside cleaning supply closets on occupied floors is ventilated to ensure that hazardous chemicals and pollutants are kept out of occupied spaces.
Credit 3.2: Water Use Reduction
High-efficiency plumbing fixtures, such as occupant sensors on sinks and urinals, reduce the demand for potable water. In aggregate water, consumption is reduced by at least 30% less water than the baseline calculated amount.
Credit 1.3: Innovation in Design,
40% Water Reduction
High-efficiency plumbing fixtures have been used to reduce the demand for potable water. In aggregate water, consumption is reduced by over 40%. Efficient fixtures include urinals that use half as much water as the standard, dual flush water closets and ultra low-flow lavatory faucets.
Credit 7.1: Thermal Comfort,
The building envelope and HVAC systems meet the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 55-2004, Thermal Comfort Conditions for Human Occupancy, thereby providing a comfortable thermal environment for building occupants.
Credit 6.2: Controllability of Systems,
Temperature sensors regulate and control specific spaces of the building to suit the comfort of building occupants. Diffuser plates at workstations allow individual occupants to meet their needs and preferences.
Credit 1.1: Innovation in Design,
The building cleaning supplies are green and environmentally friendly.
Credit 8.2: Daylight & Views,
Views for 90% of Spaces
Building occupants have a direct line of sight to the outdoor environment in 93% of all regularly occupied spaces.
Credit 5.2: Regional Materials,
20% Extracted & Manufactured Regionally
Building materials extracted and manufactured regionally constituted 20% of the total materials value. ATP harvested its own reused furniture from its previous location and new furniture was manufactured in Michigan.
Credit 1: Optimize Energy Performance
The building demonstrates an improved energy performance per ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004. Low-emissivity glass and adjustable window shades are parts of the building design that improve energy performance.
Credit 6.1: Controllability of Systems,
Lighting systems are controlled by the occupants. In multi-occupant spaces, such as conference rooms, multi-level switching is provided. Occupants in workstations are provided task lighting. To save energy, lighting is turned off automatically with occupancy sensors.
Credit 4.3: Low-Emitting Materials,
The carpet installed in the building meets the requirements of the Carpet and Rug Institute’s Green Label Plus program, thereby reducing the quantity of volatile organic compounds in the space.
Credit 1.4: Innovation in Design,
An educational web site and interactive map have been developed to instruct and promote LEED® designs.
Credit 7.2: Thermal Comfort,
The implementation of an indoor environmental quality (IEQ) group survey will assess the occupants’ overall satisfaction with the thermal comfort of the building.
Credit 4.4: Low-Emitting Material,
Composite Wood & Agrifiber Products
No composite wood or agrifiber products containing urea-formaldehyde resin were used in the construction of the building. This LEED® protocol will reduce the quantity of indoor air contaminants harmful to the installers and occupants.
