clinton libraryProject Overview: 

To complete this project, Leonardo Academy performed an initial LEED Assessment, updated policies and tracking sheets to meet LEED-EB standards, and provided staff and contractor training. Leonardo Academy managed and organized LEED-EB implementation and application preparation and submittal. Leonardo Academy also managed the procurement process for a green roof for the Library.

LEED-EB provides a framework for achieving green improvements and challenges the Clinton Foundation and NARA to continually improve the environmental performance of the building. Key Clinton Library LEED-EB certification steps included: (1) Identifying opportunities for green performance improvements (updating operating procedures and purchasing, and tuning up, or updating existing equipment), (2) Deciding which actions to implement, (3) Tracking all aspects of green building performance, and (4) Submitting an application to the USGBC for re-certification under LEED-EB. Continuous improvement and periodic re-certification of green operations will continue for the rest of the life of the building.

The LEED-EB certification process is a team effort. Joining Leonardo Academy in this effort were the two organizations responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Clinton Library and its grounds – the Clinton Foundation and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). In addition, all of the Clinton Library grounds, facility management, and housekeeping staff played a key role in the success of this initiative.
