Title: Green Buildings

Green Buildings
  • Energy Efficiency Act
  • This act will apply to all major facility
    projects that receive approval of the State
    Budget and Control Board - Permanent Improvement
    Project Request A-1 form on or after the
    effective date.
  • August 2007 was the first Budget and Control
    Board meeting after the effective date of this
  • NEW projects approved at that Board meeting (and
    beyond) will fall under this law.

  • All Major Facility Projects in this State, must
    be designed, constructed, and at least certified
    as receiving two globes using the Green Globes
    Rating System or receiving the LEED Silver
  • Major Facility Project means
  • a state-funded new construction building project
    in which the building to be constructed is larger
    than ten thousand gross square feet
  • a state-funded renovation project in which the
    project involves more than fifty percent of the
    replacement value of the facility or a change in
    occupancy or
  • a state-funded commercial interior tenant fit-out
    project that is larger than seven thousand five
    hundred square feet of leasable area.

  • These projects must be analyzed using a life
    cycle cost analysis comparing the cost and
    benefits of designing, constructing, maintaining,
    and operating the facility at the LEED Silver
    standard or two globes standard, or better, with
    certification normal industry and regulatory
    standards as applicable or some standard between
    the two that causes the project to be designed
    and constructed in a manner that achieves the
    lowest thirty-year life cycle cost.

  • Daniel Covey of the Materials Management
    Office/State Procurement will be issuing a state
    contract for Life Cycle Costing by October 15th,
  • This contract was initiated by Tom McMurray with
    the Construction and Planning section of the SC
    Budget and Control, General Services Division.
  • For now, agencies will need to go through Tom
    McMurray to access this company that is on
    state-wide contract.
  • Training will be provided.

  • In obtaining certification as receiving two
    globes using the Green Globes Rating System, a
    major facility project must earn at least twenty
    percent of the available points for energy
    performance under 'C.1.1 Energy Consumption'.
  • In obtaining certification as meeting the LEED
    Silver standard, a major facility project must
    earn at least forty percent of the available
    points for energy performance under 'EA Credit 1
    Optimize Energy Performance'.

Credit Overview
EA Credit 1 Optimize Energy Performance(1-10
points, at least 2 required, 4 by law)
  • INTENT - Achieve increasing levels of energy
    performance above the baseline in the
    prerequisite standard to reduce environmental and
    economic impacts associated with excessive energy
  • OPTION 1 Whole Building Energy Simulation -
    (1-10pts) demonstrate improvement in the
    proposed building performance rating compared to
    the baseline performance rating per Building
    Performance Rating Method in Appendix G of
    ASHRAE/IESNA Std 90.1-2004
  • OPTION 2 - Prescriptive Compliance Path - (4 pts)
    - For office buildings under 20,000 sf comply
    with the prescriptive measure of ASHRAE Advance
    Energy Design Guide for Small Office Buildings
    2004. Identify climate zone building is located
    in and comply with all recommendations.
  • OPTION 3 - Prescriptive Compliance Path - (1 pt)
    - Comply with the Basic Criteria and Prescriptive
    Measures of the Advanced Buildings Benchmark
    Version 1.1. Identify climate zone bldg is
    located and comply with all recommendations.
    Design building envelope systems to maximize
    energy performance.
  • STRATEGIES - Design building envelope systems
    to maximize energy performance.
  • REDUCE DEMAND Optimize building form
    orientation, reduce internal loads thru shell
    lighting improvements, shift load to off-peak
  • HARVEST FREE ENERGY Use daylight, ventilation
    cooling, solar heating power, wind energy,
    service water heating power generation.
  • INCREASE EFFICIENCY More efficient envelope,
    lighting, appropriately sized HVAC system.
  • RECOVER WASTE ENERGY Exhaust air energy recover,
    graywater heat recovery, and cogeneration.

  • The State Engineer's Office may waive the
    requirements of this item for a proposed major
    facility project should it determine that the
    costs of meeting this item are not economically
    feasible. The State Engineer's Office shall
    notify the board of the reason for the issuance
    of a waiver.

  • All major facility projects that were certified
    at the LEED Silver standard or higher or
    certified as receiving two globes using the Green
    Globes Rating System must be inspected by a
    third-party commissioning agent in the fifth,
    tenth, and fifteenth year following
  • The third-party commissioning agent shall
    determine whether the building is operating at
    the standard to which it was originally designed
    and certified.
  • The third-party commissioning agent shall report
    its findings to the State Engineer.
  • If the State Engineer determines that the
    building is not operating within the spirit of
    this article, the State Engineer may take
    appropriate measures to bring the building into

  • Third-party commissioning agent means a person
    accredited by the USGBC or GBI, with expertise in
    building systems performance, who will analyze,
    evaluate, and confirm the proper function and
    performance of a high performance building,, its
    systems, equipment, and indoor air quality, and
    who did not participate in the original
    certification of the major facility project or
    renovation project.

State-Wide Commissioning Contracts
  • OSE has placed 5 firms under contract, effective
    October 15, 2008, for the use of state agencies.
  • These contracts are valid for one year and can be
    renewed up to two times for a total contract time
    of 3 years.
  • Firms are listed on the OSE website along with a
    copy of the Master Agreement for Commissioning
