Green Building Regulations

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description A set of CT green building regulations has been released for public comment. The regulations were written as part of a new law that requires any State-funded projects (over $5 million for new construction, $2 million for renovation) to be built to CT green building regulations. The regulations are similar to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver or two Green Globes rating, however, the requirements for energy efficiency are not optional.

The purposes of the regulations are to establish minimum standards for the construction of state funded agency buildings in the areas of energy efficiency and renewable energy, water efficiency, site selection and development, recycling, reuse and sustainability, indoor environment, and building operations. The standards reduce the operating cost of the buildings, improve the working environment, and make the buildings more energy efficient.
