One of the first steps that a project team must take in order to reduce the energy consumption of a building is to design the project with energy goals in mind. These energy-saving benchmarks are defined in our latest infographic “Owner's Project Requirements (OPR)”. The project requirements outlined in the OPR infographic will serve as the reference points for all design, construction, and ongoing maintenance operations.
In addition to designing a project for energy efficiency right from the start, it is important that building owners understand and commit to ongoing LEED® compliant operations and maintenance when the project is complete. To help owners think through and plan for the future, LEED® requires an Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Plan that defines what is necessary to operate the building efficiently.
