TAMPA, FL—BICSI is currently working with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to develop strategies for the recognition of technology infrastructure related innovation credits in the LEED green building certification system.

BICSI representatives including president Edward J. Donelan, RCDD, NTS, TLT, of Telecom Infrastructure and president-elect Brian Hansen, RCDD, NTS, of Leviton met with the USGBC to create an awareness that the information transport systems industry manufacturers and contractors have products and processes that could apply for LEED credits, if technology credits were a part of the existing LEED rating system.

BICSI has created a consortium consisting of representatives from the industry, including members from InfoComm, to create the necessary technology credits for LEED. The members have already made comments on the existing system where possible technology credits could be included in the innovation in design section of the 2009 LEED rating system.
