IS-2007-74: LEED In Healthcare


This paper explains how hospitals, nursing homes, and clinics can implement energy conservation and achieve LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) even though LEED was developed for office buildings. Methods for water savings are presented, emphasizing substitutes for potable water in laboratory and cooling applications. Some LEED standards such as indoor-air-quality and temperature control are generally in-place in healthcare facilities. The U.S. Green Building council is preparing "The LEED Application Guide for Healthcare."
