Summary

In 2002, Cook County enacted an ordinance requiring all new county buildings and all retrofitted county buildings to be built to LEED standards. Specifically, all newly constructed buildings and all buildings scheduled for capital improvement must be built to the LEED Green Building Rating System Certification requirements, and all retrofit projects must meet LEED Certification for Existing Buildings. All buildings must set a goal of obtaining 8 or more points in the LEED Energy and Atmosphere category. Lastly, new construction and major renovation projects must incorporate bird-safe building materials and design features.
