    The appeal is one possible step of the LEED certified & documentation process.  Which of the following does NOT accurately reflect what should be included in an appeal? (Choose 1)

    • A.

      The LEED Project Checklist/Scorecard indicating projected prepequisites & credits & the total score for the project

    • B.

      Payment in the mount of $250 per credit appealed

    • C.

      An overall project narrative including at least 3 project highlights

    • D.

      LEED registration information such as project contact, type, size, number of occupants, & date of construction completion

    Correct Answer
    B. Payment in the mount of $250 per credit appealed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "payment in the amount of $250 per credit appealed." This is because an appeal is a step in the LEED certification process where the project team challenges a decision made by the certification reviewer. The appeal should include the LEED Project Checklist/Scorecard indicating projected prerequisites and credits, the total score for the project, an overall project narrative with highlights, and LEED registration information. However, there is no requirement to include a payment for each credit appealed in the appeal process.

    Exemplary performnce under ID credit 1, Innovation in Design, generally requires which one of the following? (choose 1)

    • A.

      The performance achieved is at least 10% better than that established by an existing LEED credit, regardless of which credit is being exceeded

    • B.

      That performnce achieved is either 25% better or the next incremental percentage threshold established by the existing LEED Credit that is being exceeded, whichever is greater

    • C.

      That performance achieved represents either a doubling or the next incremental percentage threshold established by the existing LEED credit that is being exceeded

    • D.

      That performance chieved is at least 50% better than that established by n existing LEED credit regardless of which credit is being exceeded

    • E.

      That performance achieved is at least double that established by an existing LEED credit, regardless of which credit is being exceeded

    Correct Answer
    C. That performance achieved represents either a doubling or the next incremental percentage threshold established by the existing LEED credit that is being exceeded
    Explanation
    The correct answer states that exemplary performance under ID credit 1, Innovation in Design, requires that the performance achieved represents either a doubling or the next incremental percentage threshold established by the existing LEED credit that is being exceeded. This means that in order to achieve exemplary performance, the project must either double the requirements set by the existing LEED credit or exceed the next incremental percentage threshold set by that credit.

    To maximize indoor air quality & chieve EQ Credit 4, Low Emitting materials, a project team specifies low- and zero- VOC content paints & coatings for nearly all painted surfaces.  During the construction phase, the team discovers that one of the subcontractors touched up a small portion of a stairwell with an anit-corrosive paint exceeding the VOC content limits estblished in the credit.  How can the situation be remedied without losing the point for this credit? (choose 1)

    • A.

      Demonstrate the VOC content of the primer used beneath the non-compliant pint is below 5 g/L

    • B.

      Strip off the high VOC content paint and replace it with Low emmiting paint

    • C.

      Prepare a VOC Budget demonstrating credit compliance

    • D.

      The credit cannot be achieved

    Correct Answer
    C. Prepare a VOC Budget demonstrating credit compliance
  • 4. 

    A new library has a total materils cost of $1 million & is working to achieve MR credit 6: Rapidly Renewable materials.  Some of the budget allocations for materials include $12,000 for linoleum flooring, $3,000 for zero-VOC paints, $6,500 for bmboo wall panels, and $8,000 for FSC Certified Wood.  Which of the following must be included in the materials budget in order to achieve this credit? (choose 1)

    • A.

      $6,800 for wheatboard cabinetry

    • B.

      $2,500 for cork flooring

    • C.

      $6,500 for metal studs with 80% recycled steel

    • D.

      $7,000 for high fly sh concrete

    • E.

      $6,000 for cotton batt insulation

    Correct Answer
    A. $6,800 for wheatboard cabinetry
    Explanation
    To achieve MR credit 6: Rapidly Renewable materials, the materials used in the library must be made from rapidly renewable resources. In the given options, the only material that qualifies as rapidly renewable is wheatboard. Therefore, $6,800 for wheatboard cabinetry must be included in the materials budget in order to achieve this credit.

    Which of the following strategies could earn an exemplary performance credit under WE Credit 2: Innovative Wastewater Technologies? (choose 2)

    • A.

      Process & non-regulated water use savings equal to at least 5% of the total design regulated water use

    • B.

      Process & non-regulated water use savings equal to at least 10% of the total design regulated water use

    • C.

      75% reduction in potable water use from a baseline case for sewage conveynce

    • D.

      100% reduction in potable water use from a baseline case for sewage conveynce

    • E.

      On-site treatment & reuse/ infiltration of 100% of generated wastewater

    Correct Answer(s)
    D. 100% reduction in potable water use from a baseline case for sewage conveynce
    E. On-site treatment & reuse/ infiltration of 100% of generated wastewater
    Explanation
    An exemplary performance credit under WE Credit 2: Innovative Wastewater Technologies can be earned by achieving a 100% reduction in potable water use from a baseline case for sewage conveyance. This means that no potable water is used for sewage conveyance, resulting in significant water savings. Additionally, the credit can be earned by implementing on-site treatment and reuse/infiltration of 100% of the generated wastewater. This ensures that wastewater is effectively treated and reused or infiltrated, reducing the demand for freshwater resources and promoting sustainable water management practices.
