In response to the mayoral mandate that all public projects in the City of New York be sustainably designed and built, we were commissioned by the NYC School Construction Authority (NYCSCA) to develop a LEED-based, school-focused prescriptive design guide and rating system for New York City public schools. Developed as a LEED-equivalent system to comply with mandated requirements, the NYC Green Schools Rating System and Guide goes beyond LEED to incorporate best practices and betterment credits from several state Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) systems.
