Regency takes a proactive role implementing Best Practices for compliance with LEED Initiatives. The LEED program on a project affects each aspect of the project, from preconstruction to cost development to field activities. The LEED Scorecard establishes the basis for each team member’s responsibility to the compliance process. Our approach is to initiate and actively manage the scorecard through teamwork with the architect, engineer, tenant, subcontractors and the building landlord.
The steps Regency employs to deliver a LEED-certified project are as follows:
- Active participation in design meetings focused on LEED planning
- Provide cost alternatives for LEED options
- Develop Action Plan to identify credits which we intend to achieve
- Review Contract Documents to verify LEED activities
- Develop and issue LEED Bid memorandum to Subcontractors
- Identify possible consultant requirements to implement LEED plan
- Project Kick-off meeting with field personnel to communicate LEED-based requirements impacting field activities
- On-site photographic documentation of LEED-based activities
- Submittal processing for LEED-based products or activities
- Collection and submission of LEED-based “field tickets”
- Preparation of contractor-driven LEED worksheets for specific credits
The LEED Certification process is embedded throughout all aspects of the project and Regency is committed to providing proactive leadership in the LEED process. While the objective in following this process is to achieve the client’s desired level of LEED compliance, the ultimate goal is to provide a healthy and comfortable work environment for the client through responsible action.
The Owner will be provided with a LEED compliance binder at the completion of the project which will tell the story of how the project team implemented a LEED-based construction process.
