Re-Assessing Green Building Performance: A Post Occupancy Evaluation of 22 GSA Buildings
The General Services Administration (GSA) sustainably designed buildings investigated under this study use less energy and water, cost less to maintain, and have occupants that are satisfied when compared to typical buildings. Additional findings from the building
performance analysis include: Aggregate operations costs are 19% lower than industry average; Carbon dioxide equivalent emissions are 34% lower than typical buildings; U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold rated buildings generally perform better when compared to industry baselines.
