Examining the cost of LEED v4 (USGBC Northern California)

Examining the cost of LEED v4 (USGBC Northern California)

We also recently completed a study for the City and County of San Francisco to inform their decision on whether to move their internal requirement for LEED Gold municipal buildings up to LEED v4. We took two recently completed LEED Gold projects that had been done under LEED 2009 with actual construction costs, determined what they would have needed to add to maintain their Gold rating in LEED v4, and estimated the costs of those measures. Some of what they would have needed to add is required by the 2016 California Energy Code, while the buildings were built to the 2010 or 2013 code, so we left out the cost of items that would now be code-required.
