All new and renewed facilities shall be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified. LEED Certification shall follow the current version of the "PSU Policy based on LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations” .
Penn State uses LEED as a tool to ensure green principles are applied to all new construction and major renovation. Specific requirements are outlined in the Design Standards, Section 01 81 13 Sustainable Design Requirements. Penn State's LEED Policy customizes the LEED process by prioritizing the implementaion of sustainable elements that are most important to the University. The Office of Physical Plant (OPP) oversees and coordinates the design and construction of all new construction, renovation and major maintenance projects for the University Park Campus. Compliance is ensured through the design and construction process led by OPP professionals. The LEED certification process itself provides third-party verification that the building was built using green strategies.
