Exploring the connection between Healthy Built Environment Linkages and LEED

Back to Resources

This resource can be used by different groups of project participants. At the early stages of a project, this document can be used as a guide for developing Request for Proposals and Owner’s Project Requirements. In the planning phase, the project team can refer to this document when deciding which LEED credits to pursue considering their potential health related outcomes. This resource can also be used during the design stage guiding designers with principles that help achieving the desired LEED credits and their associated health related outcomes.

The results of the analyses are presented in a series of diagrams. Each of the diagrams presents one of the five features of the Healthy Built Environment with its planning principles, and indicates LEED credit categories, prerequisites, and credits that were found to be associated with them.
