November 18 — The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has ruled that Gold certification under the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED green building rating system is now the minimum requirement for all new federal building construction and substatnial rennovation projects.

GSA has a portfolio of more than 361 million square feet of federally owned or leased space in its jurisdiction. By using the LEED rating system, GSA will be able to evaluate and measure achievements in sustainable design, states a GSA news release.

"Sustainable, better-performing federal buildings can significantly contribute to reducing the government's environmental footprint," said Robert A. Peck, GSA's commissioner of public buildings. "This new requirement is just one of the many ways we're greening the federal real estate inventory to help deliver on President Obama's commitment to increase sustainability and energy efficiency across government.

GSA's Facilities Standards will be updated to reflect these changes by the end of calendar year 2010.

For leases in existing buildings, LEED for Commercial Interiors is optional, at the request of the tenant agencies
