Innovation in Design
The Innovation in Design credit category provides bonus points for projects that use new and innovative technologies and strategies to improve a building’s performance well beyond what is required by other LEED credits or in green building considerations that are not specifically addressed elsewhere in LEED.
This credit category also rewards projects for including a LEED Accredited Professional on the team to ensure a holistic, integrated approach to the design and construction phase.
In addition to a credit received for participation of a LEED accredited professional, the project also received credits for a sustainable lamp purchasing plan, exemplary performance in water use reduction, UV-C lights in heat pumps and a green cleaning policy.
