Somerset County High Performance Public Buildings Program

The Somerset County High Performance Public Buildings Program is focused on creating buildings that protect taxpayer investment with reduced building operating costs and increased user productivity. The program has 18 requirements in the areas of Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials and Resources and Indoor Environmental Quality. The Somerset County Program is based on the US Green Building Council’s LEED™ New Construction rating system. Fulfillment of the Somerset County Program requirements also fulfills all of the LEED™ prerequisites and 16 additional LEED™ credits. Therefore, if a design team is interested in pursuing LEED™ Certification or beyond, the Somerset County Program can put a project well on its way.
