LEED

LEED is a holistic rating system and also a guideline for sustainable design; there is no such thing as a ‘LEED certified product’, however there are methods of using and applying the products to support the LEED principles and gain points towards project certification. The Milder System contributes to the following LEED Certifications:
LEED CI (Commerical Interiors)
LEED NC (New Construction)
LEED EB (Existing Buildings)
LEED Schools

Milder System can potentially support over 1/3 of points required for LEED certification, depending on project specifications points may vary from case to case. The following are specific points, which the Milder system may satisfy towards the LEED CI certification; each of the credits listed below have a related credit in the LEED NC, LEED EB, and LEED Schools certification structures.

There is ONE POINT for each credit listed:

Material and Resources (MR) MR Credit 2.1, Construction Waste Management, Divert 50% from landfill
Divert construction, demolition, and packaging debris from landfill disposal. Redirect recyclable recovered resources back to the manufacturing process. Redirect reusable materials to appropriate sites.

MR Credit 2.2, Construction Waste Management, Divert 75% from landfill Divert construction, demolition, and packaging debris from landfill disposal. Redirect recyclable recovered resources back to the manufacturing process. Redirect reusable materials to appropriate sites.

* The Milder Office Furniture system is blanket wrapped in shipment for delivery, not wrapped in any disposable materials, thereby contributing to the overall reduction of construction waste. Total percentage and eligibility for Credits MR 2.1 and 2.2 vary based on entire scope of construction project.

MR Credit 4.1 Recycled Content, 10% Use materials, including furniture and furnishings, with recycled content such that the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the post-industrial content constitutes at least 10% of the total value of the materials in the project.

MR Credit 4.2, Recycled Content, 20% Use materials, including furniture and Furnishings, with recycled content such that the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus ½ (one-half) of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least 20% of the total value of the materials in the project.

* The aluminum used in the Milder Furniture System is comprised entirely of recycled metal; documentation available upon request.

MR Credit 5.1 Regional Materials, 20% manufactured regionally Use a minimum of 20% of the combined value of construction and Division 12 (Furniture) materials and products that are manufactured regionally within a radius of 500 miles. Only applicable for projects located within 500 mi of New York.

MR Credit 5.2 Regional Materials, 10% extracted regionally In addition to the requirements of MR 5.1, use a minimum of 10% of the combined value of construction and Division 12 (Furniture) materials and products extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project.

MR Credit 6, Rapidly Renewable Materials In addition to the requirements of MR 5.1, use a minimum of 10% of the combined value of construction and Division 12 (Furniture) materials and products extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project.

MR Credit 7, Certified Wood When using new wood-based products and materials, use a minimum of 50% that are certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council’s Principles and Criteria. Division 12 (Furniture) material value is included in the determination of the certified wood content. FSC wood available upon request.

Indoor Environmental Air Quality (EQ) EQ Credit 4.5, Low Emitting Materials Use systems furniture and office seating that is Greenguard™ certified or registered or meet similar emissions testing as specified in LEED-CI document

EQ Credit 8.1, Daylight + Views, 75% Daylight Achieve a minimum Daylight Factor of 2% (excluding all direct sunlight penetrations) for 75% or more of all regularly occupied areas. Strategies to consider include lower partition heights, interior shading devices, interior glazing and photo-integrated light sensors.

EQ Credit 8.2, Daylight + Views, 90% Daylight Achieve a minimum Daylight Factor of 2% (excluding all direct sunlight penetrations) for 90% or more of all regularly occupied areas.
