Minnesota Sustainable Building Guidelines
LHB manages the B3 project, including guidelines to ensure energy and resource efficiency for all new state-funded buildings and public buildings. LHB was selected by the Department of Administration to lead a team to develop the Minnesota Sustainable Building Design Guidelines and a benchmarking tool to meet the requirements of legislation effective January 2003. LHB is also on the team developing the new Minnesota Sustainable Building 2030 (SB 2030) energy standards. The SB 2030 requirements will be incorporated into the Minnesota Sustainable Building Guidelines to ensure greater energy efficiency and carbon reduction for new and substantially renovated buildings.
