With the addition of three new case studies from the 2008 AIA COTE Top Ten awards (Aldo Leopold Legacy Center - Platinum; Yale University Sculpture Building and Gallery - Platinum; Macallen Building Condominiums - Gold), now features over 100 LEED certified building case studies from the High Performance Building Database (HPB). HPB is a great tool for researching the strategies used by other designers to achieve design goals and create successful (and sometimes unsuccessful green designs). The ratings page of LEED case studies shows the points awarded to the project. Pages such as site & water and materials describe design characteristics of the projects and strategies used, and in addition the energy page includes simulation and/or actual energy use where available.
