Abstract

This project shows the implications of adding green technology to a structure. In order to accomplish this, a structure was designed according to the IBC building code, and a lifecycle cost was completed. Then the structure was raised to meet L.E.E.D. silver status and, another cost analysis was completed to determine the economic impact and feasibility of the changes.
