I will admit I know little to nothing about green/LEED buildings. I was involved in a conversation today about buildings with green roofs,etc. Anyone have any investigations in one of these buildings? We have a few proposed where I am interested to see if has any comments on them.

Some Leed information for you. Best I can offer. Not many LEED buildings in Volly land around here.
Good luck...PM me let me know how it turns out. Looking at building a new LEED Fire Station/training center here."The probability of someone watching you is proportional to the stupidity of your action."

When fire is cried and danger is neigh,
"God and the firemen" is the people's cry;
But when 'tis out and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the firemen slighted.

Yeah I agree it does take a lot away. Though it is going to be paid for by Stim money and it is one of the requirements that it be energy eff. and overall green capable of LEED certification. Federal organization..three engine bay station with separate flight facilities for Lifeflight, cops, dualing fed helos, and mini tanker base. Engine station will have a shot crew, two engines one muni and one fed. Going to be an adventure. A lot of separate parties and interest. See what happens five years from now."The probability of someone watching you is proportional to the stupidity of your action."

International Code Council - IgCC
Thanks for the information above, I thought it would be a good idea to
let everyone know that the International Code Council has been working
on a new code called the International Green Construction Code or IGCC.
Unlike LEED, which is a rating system, the IGCC will be an enforceable
and adoptable code for jurisdictions across the US. The ICC is set to
release the Public Version for comment very soon and needs comments from
our community in order to ensure these codes meet the expectation of the
community. For more information: www.iccsafe.org/igcc
