Provident

LEEDŽ SERVICES

LEEDŽ Project Management

Provident professionals manage the entire LEEDŽ process, from project inception through to certification. Our services include:

  • Lead integrated design facilitation meetings to define Owner's sustainable goals.
  • Provide technical support to design and construction teams, including interpretation of credit intent and assistance with calculations and submittals.
  • Manage all letter templates, background calculations, and audit materials.
  • Prepare submission package, complete with project narrative, template binder, drawings, schematics, and background materials.

Building Energy Modeling

Building energy modeling provides a means to evaluate the energy efficiency of a proposed building design and determine the impacts of various design changes. Energy modeling is a key part of an integrated design process and is a required prerequisite for LEEDŽ.

Potential services include:

  • Investigate impact of various design options on energy consumption.
  • Demonstrate compliance with LEEDŽ prerequisite and earn LEED® energy credits.
  • Secure government and utility-sponsored financial incentives, including BBP-NC, HPNC, and DAP.
  • Demonstrate energy code compliance including Ontario Building Code SB-10.

Energy Measurement and Verification

Measurement and verification (M&V) provides for the ongoing accountability and optimization of building energy consumption. M&V offers a credit under LEED® for new buildings. Our scope includes:

  • Review controls, mechanical and electrical equipment design to define equipment and quantities to be monitored for each of the required end uses.
  • Prepare periodic energy savings reports during the first year of operation, summarizing predicted vs. actual energy savings and identifying any major discrepancies.

Building Systems Commissioning

Commissioning is a quality control process to ensure the owner's functional and sustainability goals are met. Commissioning is a required prerequisite under LEEDŽ. Our full scope of service includes:

  • Assemble and review the owner's requirements and basis of design.
  • Prepare a commissioning plan including construction checklists.
  • Perform independent peer reviews of design and construction documents.
