The Massachusetts School Building Authority Requires Funded Projects to Register Under LEED for Schools v4

Last month, the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) Board of Directors approved an update to their Sustainable Building Design Guidelines that will require projects beginning June 5, 2014 entering schematic design to register under LEED for Schools v4

You can read the full memorandum here - that outlines the MSBA's current practices, discussion, outcome, and recommendations. Massachusetts is fortunate to have a funding entity that requires all new school construction to select a green building certification and provides a financial incentive to exceed the required, basic green building certification level. 

Stay tuned for more information on this update. We are working on programs to educate our network on the v4 LEED for Schools rating system and to highlight LEED for Schools projects across the State.
