City of Cleveland green building guidelines explained

As part of AIA Cleveland's Design Month, Michael McBride, project coordinator, Housing Development Office, City of Cleveland's Community Development Department; Andrew Watterson, Cleveland Chief of Sustainability; and Jim Danek, Assistant Director of Planning will discuss The City of Cleveland's adopted Cleveland Green Building Standard (CGBS) as a requirement for all residential new construction and rehabilitation projects that receive assistance from the City, including tax abatement. The primary path for complying with the Standard is the nationally recognized Enterprise Green Communities Criteria (EGCC).

This presentation will describe the City of Cleveland's initiative to promote the creation of afforable green housing. It will focus on the nuts and bolts of implementing a process for developers and builders to follow the EGCC path to meeting the CGBS.

The Relationship of the EGCC to zoning codes and baseline building energy codes in Cleveland and their mutual evolution will be discussed. Case studies will be presented with particular attention to the role of the design professional in the green development plan.
