Maryland Expanding Green Building Thru Government Leases
Green Building Law Update
FEBRUARY 11, 2018
The Maryland Green Building Council recommended a broad and deep expansion of green building leasing by state government and the Maryland Department of General Services has agreed to enlarge what is a “high performance building” for the purposes of state government leasing. Maryland has for more than a decade had a statutory requirement that new construction projects 100% funded by the State’s capital budget must meet or exceed the current version of LEED.
